Bye Bye Birdies

Yes, I'm almost sad to report that our little hobgoblin robins have flown the coop.

I got up early on Wednesday morning and went outside for a quick check on them. I was lucky enough to find just one little hobgoblin left in the nest, and he was perched on the edge ready to leave. As soon as he saw me, he hunkered back down.

Seconds after I snapped that photo, he popped up, jumped down, and hopped away.

He's been back to visit us a few times though, and we have seen all three baby robins at one time so we know they all made it out of the nest and are flying, even if it is a little unsteady.

Bye Bye Birdies. See you next year.

Except please don't build your nest right on our deck and outside the back door. It was sort of inconvenient.
