This is great! Just gotta love the teenage bad hair day, right before fledge! I did not know that both male and female robins are involved with the young!

Pamela 05/05/11 09:20 am Thank you Shelley--it is a perfect video to celebrate the merry month!

Earlier I had asked if Robins used the same nest each year and Melanie and Anne responded. I took their advice and removed last year's nest from the holly. It must have been a little too late as they chose to build in another holly not quite as visible from the window, but in the same area.

A favorite bookstore attracted me to the shelf displaying a copy of THE SEASONS OF THE ROBIN by Don Grussing which was published in 2009. It is recommended as being one of the more definitive resources to the American Robin. How could anyone resist?

Celeste 05/05/11 02:43 pm Oh did I love this! Thanks Shelley says me with a big smile! We have so many robins and I love the minute they see Frank and I in the yard they think we are going to do yard work and can't wait for us to leave so they can find their meals. Frank was working in his mulch pile and the robin was practically kicking Frank away so he could have his feast! Spring is truly wonderful!:-)
Lori 05/05/11 05:37 pm Awwww, real "empty nest syndrome" :)
Nancy L 05/05/11 07:04 pm Thanks, Shelley. Loved it!
Marie 05/11/11 01:29 pm that is a sweet video Shelley...goes to show that male and females in many species of bird do share nest duties, however in the world of ' HUMMERS ' that is not so...Phoebe , the Allen's Hummer in California that is on the net is on her 3 rd brood already with no help from the male other than his part in mating. What an amazing egg machine and mother she is....
