Morning John:

In many instances, the last chick to hatch becomes a target by its siblings and does not survive. Natural selection can be an intentionally cruel thing. Let's hope the three that have emerged will become adults and aid us in our "war with insects."

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Dave

Yes, it's survival of the fittest in the animal kingdom. Though I'm impressed with how well momma and papa Robin are taking care of their babies.

`Gummo had no birthday
Perhaps he met his fate
I think he isnít coming
I fear itís much too late
Perhaps he was a masterpiece
And too good for this earth
Was taken up to heavenís gates
Where angels watched his birth
Heís looking down upon us
He sees his siblings squirm
Their nest is getting tighter
As they fill up with worms
He knows they all will meet again
And they will sweetly sing
When all of them are called back home
To chirp before the King!`

Two robins just fled the nest. Up in trees already. Momma and papa's zooming back and forth. Came close to my noggin. laugh Only bone left. Looks like he's lonely, but afraid to make the plunge.

The last baby is standing on the ledge. Appears to be mustering up courage to make the jump. Meanwhile mama and papa are frantically whizzing back a and forth in front of the nest. Making me nervous...

No sign of the mama, papa, or babies today. I reckon they've gotten on with their lives. I'll probably take the nest down tomorrow so I can start watering and taking care of Poor Fern.

End of the baby robins saga...

They may return next year. I live on a farm and I am sure the same robins or their offspring return each year to nest.

I don't doubt it. Then John could write a Robin's Saga --- or something. Maybe "Roundabout Robins" I like that. It flows nicely. Maybe i'll write a lyric

Good one Lynn. I took the nest down. Found two unhatched eggs left behind. From the research I did, I found the robins don't usually come back to a previous nest. Now maybe Mr. Fern will start looking healthier.
