Fledged!


We went to see the boys and the nest was empty (I don’t know if they are boys, but I feel they are, so that’s what I’m saying). We figured it was getting close to that time since the last time we were there one of them was sitting in a nearby tree. Here they are on top of some irrigation equipment in a corn field across from the nest. Notice the parent down the way keeping watch. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Growing fast



This morning I discovered one eaglet a few trees over from the nest, on the branch where the parents often sit. His/Her sibling was still hanging out at the nest. I imagine both are flying quite a bit now. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Robins’ Nest Update


I discovered the nest empty on June 1. This is the last picture I took on May 29. I have to assume the chicks fledged as the nest did not look disturbed and I have seen the parents around the yard quite a bit. I have seen a few young ones staying close to the thickets, coming out to get a few bites from parents. With so many around right now, it’s impossible to tell if any are from this nest. 🙂 Click on picture to enlarge.
