Baby Robins

OMC one of the baby robins, as it branched out, FELL OUT!!! Oh he's fine, and thanks to TSB, back in the nest with his siblings. She didn't take the time to bother taking pics after he fell out, she was too concerned about getting him back in the bush, and when he didn't seem to be navigating towards the nest, back into the nest itself. He's back, but TSB worries about how the parents will react to him now that he has human scent on him. But he's almost ready to fledge, so hopefully he'll be ok. TSB has never held a robin before (obviously) but has held injured birds before, so she handled this guy ever so delicately. The bird also seemed to trust her, she says, because he had one heck of a grip on her finger! She hopes they will be fine and soon the bush will not be such a perilous place for a baby birdie! A neighbor also says that she seen one too close to the ground earlier, so it is possible it's the same baby, as he's the biggest of them. But without any further ado, here's the little guy!
