ABC WEDNESDAY-Another "U"-Truly Unbelievable!


On theme day I showed you this nest under construction.  This morning when I stepped out to pick up my morning paper, I noticed that all but one of the babies had already flown away.  I watched as this one gingerly left the nest and was perched for take-off.  It left its comfortable home as Mama watched from a nearby tree.  It's off on its first adventure.  Good luck Little Robin!

  16. Our Robins abandoned their two nest this year with unhatched eggs but last year we got to witnessed them fly too. Nice!
