Two weeks to the day from hatching, the baby robins left the nest to stake their own claim in the world. The first two birds left the nest this morning, bird number four, the smallest, is still hanging in the nest. I expect he will be gone by this evening. I got to watch the third robin fledge, fly across the street and take up residence in a nearby tree. Here are the photos.

Since the robin took up residence on my porch, I’ve had the opportunity to watch and photograph the entire growth process. You can catch up on the entire robin saga here.
