Sad News



My little heart was broken yesterday. I came home from work and found one baby robin had fallen from the nest and was dead. I thought it might be alive at first and it may have been but only for a second and then i knew it wasnt. I said my little farewell and placed it in the shrubs. Soo for now I have 3 babies and so far they continue to do well. They look like Robins now. I go up to them and when they see me, they scrunch down into the nest as far as they can as if they are hiding from me. They are adorable. Mom makes her noises in the trees but by now she knows I wont bother them. I'm thinking next week is it and they head on out. We are off to our trailer tomorrow--I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing weekend.

Dawn, Sometimes the mom will push a baby out of the nest for one reason or another. It is sad. maybe it was sickly. I hope the rest make it.
Hugs, Terrie

I wish you could come over for lunch!

I'm so sorry, Dawnie, I know how attached you've become to those little babies. Hope the others do well, it will be exciting to see them attempting to fly. Have a great weekend. Kathy

I know how sad this is. We have had four dead baby birds this year. The boys get so upset when they find one. They are coming from birdhouses up in the trees. Hubby thinks they fall out. Praying for the other three.

I hate when stuff like that happens. It's sad to watch something die, even a little birdie.
It sounds like you are in for a fun filled weekend.

I am sad about your baby robin. We just had a nest a few weeks back that had eggs in it but they did not make it. :(
