Last to Leave

Crepe myrtle trees in The Frog & PenguINN yard have hosted many nests over the years, most recently two robin nests.

This was the mama robin a couple of weeks ago — sitting and waiting . . .

And this was the last hatching ready to fledge and leave the nest, but in no hurry.

Under the watchful eyes of its parent who perched on the nearby patio fence.
We didn't see any other nest-mates before they left and hope they fly off safely.

It's always fun to watch them grow and fly so quickly.

Great photos! I couldn't get close enough to get good ones of our Robin family. They made quite a racket when they were teaching the kids how to go out on their own though. So I heard them. All's quiet now.

The hatchling looks quite distinctive!

Been watching a family of jays in my backyard. Have some new bluebirds in the back forty. Have doves and robins out front, may have to pass out a few cigars for all those babies.

What a beautiful close-up of the mother robin. That is a fantastic picture. It must have been fun watching the little ones get ready to leave.
