Saturday Critters ~ 133 ~

On Thursday June 23rd, my three babies left the nest, moved on, flew the coop!!

This was the last picture I took of them on June 22nd.
When I woke up on the 23rd and checked the nest, it was empty.

Last time I peeked in on the babies, momma,

and poppa were not thrilled.

I got "the look" and "the stare down", so I snapped quickly.
I can still hear them fussing around in the front yard but have not seen them.

they're precious. we have a robin family that nests here every year (at least i think it's the same one). i see babies in the yard lots of different times. it's always nice to see life growing and exploring. hope all is well. have a great day~

So happy for that happy robin family! So funny that you got the stare & you've been the bestest hostess!
Happy 4th Debbie!

Sweet shots- yes, that nest does not look like it could stand for them to gain another ounce!

Sally said...

awww - well like most kids, they flew the nest. You really got some great pics, Debbie.

Well that's the thing about birds, they are fast learners and fly away too soon for us! This reminds me how far I've fallen back in my blogging while being in Alabama!

Hello Debbie, the first shot made me smile. The baby robins are adorable. Mom and Dad are pretty too. Great series of photos.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your 4th of July weekend!

Lovely Debbie, I love that look on the Robin's face in that last shot.
I love your bird pictures so much Debbie.

Excited that the little ones all made it and happily flew away! You've taken some great pictures of them. Great picture of daddy, too!

They are great pictures. Isn't it wild how one day they are still in the nest, and the next day they are gone?

Linda said...

Aww, bye bye pretty babies! Bon Voyage!

It is bittersweet...

Bird babies always seem to know the right moment to leave the nest. I bet you have a new family next year!

I loved your good by photos. We actually discovered a baby Robin in our yard. It was down on the ground and the parents were on the fence and roof. When we put our dog Sammy out they got really upset and started to fly at him. We kept an eye on them for a couple of days and then they disappeared. I did get a photo of the two babies; that I will share at some moment of time.
Blessings and hugs~
