Robin Babies Are Thriving

When you last saw the nest there was one fleshy little thing and three eggs. By the end of the morning we had one egg left. It seemed that it would not hatch, and then a little hole appeared, and movement, as the beak worked its way slowly through. Soon we had four desperately hungry beaks to feed.
Now we have fancy feathers starting to form.
What's hard to believe is that by two weeks old, they will be leaving the nest.
Its a long way down. I hope they get it right!

I scrolled down hoping for these pics and you didn't disappoint! Thank you! But I know that one won't make it. Kinda sad, but that's Nature.
