This morning when we woke up, Mama Robin and all three babies were in the nest. More chirps, more experimental flapping of little wings. It really has been amazing to see how fast these baby birds grow!
When we got back from our morning adventures (grocery shopping, donut eating, a visit to the indoor playground), only one baby bird was left.
I watched Mama Bird feed it one last time. I watched the bird hop in and out of its nest onto the deck beam for the first time which was actually really interesting to watch in its own way. Then, I got to watch that baby bird fly for the first time as it realized there was an entire world outside of that nest!
It was such an exceptional thing to witness.
