A sad update

July 11, 2010

After checking in on the baby robins this morning, it appears that only one of the babies has survived. The rational side of me knows this is simply nature’s way, but the sensitive side of me is quite sad.

The little one (I’m assuming the first-born) is growing fast as a weed and nearly takes up the entire nest now. He or she is already grayish/black with feathers all over its body, when just a few days ago it was all pink and ‘fur.’ Its eyes are also clearly open now. I imagine it will only be a couple of days before it will take first flight.

Here are a few pictures of the little one (all from the iPhone so not as good as I would like). You can clearly see how much baby bird has grown. We wish it all the best as it leaves the nest soon.
