    DefaultGood Boy Guthrie!

    We have a Robin's nest in our backyard that I have been watching for the past couple weeks. I have thought to myself that the economic crunch must also be effecting the birds because this Robin's nest is VERY small. When she layed 4 eggs I was concerned about how the babies would ever fit.

    Well...they have been getting bigger and bigger by the day. This was them yesterday.



    Tonight on my way home from work I called my mom. We were talking for a few minutes when she suddenly told me to hold on and she started to frantically call Guthrie to come into the house(which he did). I asked her what was wrong and she said that 5 minute ago she saw him nosing around on the back patio...she just assumed it was a bug he was checking out....well...it was one of the baby Robins. One got squeezed out of the nest today. Poor baby. He was not even ready to fledge...still naked in places. But my good boy was gentle and did not hurt him!!

    When I got home I made a makeshift nest out of a bird bath and place it up in the shrub next to the other nest. Here is baby Robin in his new spacious nest.


    And his cosy siblings.....I wonder who is going to fall out next?

    Sweet, gentle Guthrie! I hate to think what would happen to a baby bird with mine.
    I wonder if Mama bird will feed the loner. If not, you may be collecting worms to feed Guthrie's baby bird.

    Good boy Guthrie!! Maybe he wanted a pet of his own. Hope the little robin likes his new, spacious home!

    Awww what a GOOD boy he is !! Have you seen Mama bird yet, is she feeding the lonely guy ?
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    Aw good boy Guthrie!

    Mama bird will probably ignore the loner, now that it smells different. If you want you can buy baby bird formula at most pet stores and feed him that, but you'd have to bring him inside with a hot water bottle or something and feed him every 2-3 hours (I've done it with starlings, hard work but rewarding when they make it!).
