Babysitting

Young Robin CR.jpg

As I pushed Wyokiddo on her swing this morning, I noticed an adult robin hopping around with a worm in its mouth. My daughter and I stopped playing and watched as the robin took the worm to the base of our tree and fed it to a baby robin! He was so still and blends in so well, we didn’t even notice him until he opened his beak! This little guy must have fallen from the nest and isn’t quite ready to fly, so mama and daddy robin are taking him food. I just love his little “ear tufts.”

We see a lot of the ugly side of nature.  It’s nice to see the tender side, too.
