Rescuing Baby Robins

Bobby found a robin's nest that had fallen from it's branch while he was mowing this evening. Only one of the three eggs survived the fall. The ants had already gotten to the other two. Poor baby birdies. We put the nest and eggs into a shoebox until I would wield my mighty Google powers to see what we could do to save the one remaining egg.

Google (in all of it's incredible wisdom) told me to put the nest back in the tree and hope that the mama would come back. I stuck it back in a crook of branches as securely as I could without breaking the nest, and now we're just praying that the mama comes back to take care of her last baby.

Macie and I will be checking on the baby tomorrow to see if the nest survives tonight's storms. Hopefully we'll be seeing a baby robin soon!!

We've got another nest in the backyard that I haven't identified yet, but we'll be watching that one for hatchlings, too!!

Ha! Macie looks so sweet, while Emery looks oh so miserable!

i keep saying i'm going to keep up with this silly blog, but i am so should be easy, though. i have a camera, i have beautiful babies, i have pretty weather. i am blog lazy, ha! maybe i should just challenge myself to one or two posts a week for a bit. in all seriousness, I do want this to be a place for my friends and family to keep up with us. so, i guess it's just a matter of me making a real commitment to it. so here it is, folks. i'm going to do it! someone out there badger me if there isn't a new post in a few days!!
