Young Robins in Nest

robin babies in nest
Once again we have baby robins growing up outside our porch. Last time we saw them I got photos of the baby blue eggs. This time, I was busy with my daughter’s bat-mitzvah in early June when I first noticed a mama robin sitting on a nest in a bush that I really would love to trim down in size. By the time I had my camera ready to photograph them, they were hatched young robins, asking for food from mama or papa robin.

I used my telephoto lens to reach the young robins for a photo. Can you see the young robins crying for food?

So I will be waiting a little longer before I find someone to do the trimming. These bushes are too big to trim on my own.

Here’s the mama robin (or is it the papa?) sitting on the nest.

Have you ever seen baby robins? Do you ever find that watching a birth or young one in nature can help when feeling a sense of loss?

  • These are wonderful. Love seeing them in the nest. The robin nest at my house are too well hidden for photographs and I never get shots until they are juveniles and out of the nest.

  • Seeing young birds and flowers coming up makes me feel that there is a sense of continuity and order to the world when there is so much violence and hate in many parts. It helps me to escape. How cute these are and how lovely to have them nesting near you… Nice to see you in Nature Notes Leora..Michelle

    • It’s nice to be back, to have something great to share, and not feel like life is too much of a rush. Not sure if I will have something every week, but I will spend a little time thinking about what is possible.

    • Susan, your comments are making me realize I need to get out into nature … I’ll have to plan my (short) trips, as they won’t happen unless I do.

Please write a comment! I love to hear from you.
