Thanks abby and ct. Unfortunately the last picture in the series was taken the day they all left the nest, never to return. :( I read online that they don't reuse the nest, but will make a fresh one for each brood. Robins can lay up to four times from April to July, sounds exhausting! Both parents feed and care for their babies never venturing to far away, although I noticed that papa would never sit on the eggs or the new hatchlings, but rather stand guard on the edge of the nest. Mom keeps the nest impectably clean, eating the egg shells and etc. never complain about changing diapers again and you know what I mean! :shock: It was a real treat for the grandkids to watch them thru the front window without distrubing them at all. Mom always kept on eye on us coming and going thru the front door, but seemed to become accustomed to us over the 4 1/2 weeks the nursery was on our porch, letting me stand at the opposite end to take pictures. Such fun! :D
