The last nestling watched the previous nestling hop across the ground. Both babies were chirping, as were the two adults who were stationed nearby at the edge of the woods.
After a few minutes of indecision, the last baby was suddenly air born! It flew almost to the edge of the woods – an impressive first flight!
What a privilege it has been to watch two batches of babies grow up and leave the nest – first the Great Horned Owlets, and now the American Robins!
