Flew the Coop....

Nary a goodbye wave, nor forwarding address; Larry, Daryl and Daryl ventured out into the big
wide world today.
The last I saw of them, they were flying awkwardly across the new Spring grass, their mum screaming frantically behind.
I could have swore I saw her covering her eyes, with her wing !
Stay safe my little friends .........

Sorry they are gone---but another bunch will come in soon!!!!!

I read that Robins raise 3 broods a year---so I'm sure they will be back...

How neat that you got to see them!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Ahh I bet you feel really motherly towards those baby birds yourself, Jo. I do hope they have a good life and don't come to grief. Thanks for sharing that lovely experience with us.
Blessings, Star

Not even a goodbye? I found a nest full of little chickadees today. They look as if they'll be gone by tomorrow or so. I think we were both shocked to see each other. The mother robin will probably use the same next again.

It's always so sad when babies leave the nest... the sign made me laugh though LOL

And 'my' birdies are just beginning to build their new homes, or do home improvements on the old ones!
