Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Today I will tell the rest of the story about the American Robins here on my street.  These are another group of Robins from those I spoke of in Part 1 of the Robin Stories.  I was out on another walk with my camera recently and spotted an American Robin on a neighbor’s lawn hunting for worms.  The Robin was lucky and got its worm.  I continued taking pictures and found to my amazement, that in the shadow, there was a fledgling Robin who was waiting for its worm dinner!  Daddy was teaching the youngster how to hunt for worms and other insects.  I know it’s hard to see, but in the last two  photo’s, the Daddy is going toward the younger bird and bends to feed the youngster.  The American Robin seems to be a great parent to its young!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version of that photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Great robin pictures. I love watching robins pull worms out of the ground. I wonder if the robins can hear the worms moving?

  2. Don’t you just love Robins, Linda? I have a picture somewhere of a Mama or Daddy Robin and a fledgling on our deck a year ago.. I’ll have to find those pictures and send them to you. The little one was so cute!!!

  3. I think Robins are the very best bird parents and just love to watch them. I haven’t seen any babies yet this year here though.
