Mother's Day with Feathers

Today is a day to celebrate mothers, including this mom robin who set up home in the red cedar tree of our front yard.

While she raised her family of four young robins (chicks).

Feeding time was always a busy time as both parents feed this always hungry group..

The chicks grew very quickly  — these photos were all taken within one week. 
And soon all were gone, leaving their home neat for perhaps a new family..



Wishing all blog moms a Happy Mother's Day.

Hi Beatrice, and Happy Mother's Day!
You wrote me a little while back, said you found us on Debbie's blog? Isn't she the Cat's Pajamas? You also said you enjoyed our blog. Thank you so much! Josephine purred with pleasure when I read her your comment. Life has not been the same around here since she realized the blog is about HER -more or less. LOL!
Started following your groovy site. The pix are neat. If you want to ever email me directly, I have a widget where you can do that on our site. Or feel free to comment, of course!
Smiles, m & jb

Great documentation of "life of a robin".... looks like she did a good job of raising her young. I think that's the wish all we mothers have ;-)

Happy Mother's Day to you Beatrice! Love this series of photos of the mom robin and her family... I'm always amazed at how industrious little birds are and how beautiful their natural home is built one stick at a time...

This is such a great visual documentary. I liked seeing those robins grow up so fast while in the nest. I am watching a nest right now but don't know if they have hatched.
