We have a nest of baby robins at our office! :) The nest is on a ledge on the underside of our front porch, right by our reception room window!

We watched Momma robin painstakingly build this nest over and over again (she would bring the nesting material up to the ledge and place it, only to have it blow away in the wind. :().

We named the babies (2 males, 1 female... there was another but we haven't seen it in days :()... the big beasty male is Ollie, the smaller male that the big beasty male likes to sit on is Henery, and the small female is Rhonda.

Ollie and Henery were stretching their wings yesterday and we're hoping that they'll take their first flight soon! All of our patients (and us too!) love to peer out the window and watch our little feathery family. :)

How cute! Ollie is huge!!

How can you tell male from female in robins? They all look the same to me. We have a pair building a nest in the tree outside my kitchen window.

Those are really great pics! It's hard to be in the right place at the right time to get pics of baby birds like that :)

Love the pics! I'm betting you have two females (the larger) and one male (smallest). Just a guess... that's how it works with the raptors, anyway. :)

That's really cool. Welcome to the new birds. Ollie is a big boy--flight lessons might be a concern!

Yeah, I thought YAY a new Henery and Ollie-bear related thread. Plus a new Shanna thread. I should go away for a few days more often! :)
