If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Here at Chez Birdorable we were lucky to have a nesting family of American Robins in our front yard. The babies fledged earlier this week. American Robins will have two to three broods per season. Females choose the nesting site and build the nest themselves, using dead grass, mud, and other materials. Typically four eggs are laid, although the nest in our front yard had just three. You can learn more about American Robin nesting behavior at Cornell's NestWatch. Below are some baby photos of 'our' robin babies and some other baby American Robin pictures shared via Flickr.
Pretty cute, right? Be sure to check out our (adult) Birdorable American Robin t-shirts & gifts!
