Robin Chicks Growing So Fast!

Lately I’ve been writing about birds, and I’m very ok with that! Birds have been around for… what, like at least a decade right? But only recently have I been interested in them. It mostly came from when I started taking pictures of birds at a Florida beach. Check out a few photos of eagles, cormorants, woodpeckers, and more in either of these posts…

Land of the free, nothing but bald eagle photos

Birds of Paradise

More bird photos here, too!

Back here in Tennessee, though, it’s only been a few days since these robins hatched and their skin is already darkening. It amazes me how quickly they are looking more and more like the birds they will become. So if you’ve been following along, you know there were four eggs in the nest in front of my house, three eggs which have hatched and a lone blue egg still resting in the nest. My guess is it won’t hatch, sadly, but what happens to it remains to be seen. Sad news aside, here are a few recent pics, including the first photos of mom and dad! They were hovering (like any good protective parent?) above me right before they dive bombed me for interrupting their lives… again.

Is it just me or are they growing rapidly? Do you think the last egg will hatch? Let me know in the comments.

    1. That’s a good question and I don’t have the answer. I know they are already half way to being adults though, and it hasn’t been long since they hatched. Last time I checked, one of the parents swooped down and I felt the wind from it’s wings so I haven’t checked on them since then haha

      1. My goodness, tried to get photos this afternoon and the parents were not having it. I got one blurry photo as I jumped out of the way of a diving parent haha I’ll post another update but no more photos of the babies haha
