Young Robins in the nest

Posted on Sunday 14 June 2009


Tina Valentinetti got these great shots of a clutch of young robins in a nest built on the side of her Moretown home.  She noticed the nest being built in mid May.  Robins are born altricial, but according to the Birder’s Handbook (and Tina) they fledge within 14 days of birth.





 This is the last shot Tina got before these birds fledged sometime between June 8th and June 9th.  Tina is hoping that the female will return to lay a second clutch and take more advantage of that great Valentinetti hospitality.
