    Here's what we've been watching from our deck. The nest is in the neighbor's house gutter. The babies are grown now and flew away yesterday. We watched them grow and now we'll miss them.

    My folks had a robin nest in the garage and we watched them until they flew away. There were 3 babies in it. I love seeing wild life like this. Thank you for the pictures!

    They'll be around for a while yet. Mom will continue to feed them for 1-2 weeks even though they can fly. We just "lost" our baby but got to watch him hop around the ground while mom taught him to "hunt" and fed him.

    And ... most Robins will lay a second and sometimes a third clutch before the end of the summer.

    We have a nest with 3 eggs. The Robins keep chasing the squirrel away. They take a bath everynight in the bird bath. They're fun to watch.

    Oh so cute. We have some robins in our yard and I think they are feeding their babies too. Usually hear birds singing when daylight begins but the past week or so I've been hearing them singing all day long from a big tree next door. Also have seen a robin on our lawn or back yard pulling up worms.

    I had a cardinal make a nest on my back porch. I felt so attached to it watching it every day. Now I have blue birds I am watching.
