They’re Growing Up Quick

Days 5, 6 and 7 of the Robirdsons

If you missed it, here is my first post on the Robirdsons.

And here is my second post.

I will have one last post after this one about my little birdy family.

Seriously, I try so hard to stay away from this little family in my back window but I just love to watch them.

 Does this mean I need to get a life?

Um, nevermind, don’t answer that, it was a rhetorical question, I don’t think I really want to know.


These hungry little piglets seem like they grow by the hour.


We had a couple of days of damp and colder than normal weather and momma took her place on her nest in order to keep her babies warm.


I feel as though I am truly blessed having a front row seat to this little life event. 



It’s rare to see momma and pappa at the same time on the nest but I was happy to get the rare shot. 

Ok, now admit it, they are (finally) adorable!

 It’s getting close, I can feel it, they are getting old enough to go out on their own.

  1. OMG, they are just the sweetest things! Such good mommy and daddy! They do grow so fast, don’t they? Soon they’ll be trying to fly. That’ll be interesting!

    About 2 years ago, a friend gave me a decorative birdhouse. Something you’d put on a side table or coffee table. I had it on my patio table. Next thing I know, wrens are trying to build a nest in it! So I placed it on a pedestal stand in my garden and they managed to raise a family in it!! It was a little nerve racking because I had three cats at that point. But they never bothered it. It did fall over once, but everyone inside was alright. We have since mounted it on a very tall pole. And the wrens are residing there today!


  2. I was a bad kid to get the bird nest of the tree branch. Please excuse me for I was not more than 12 years old. Honestly I felt guilty for I destroyed their nest or home. I just want to transfer it. That photo only reminds me that those creatures is such a wonderful things. Don’t worry no birds are harm when I take off the nest.


  3. wonderful! I raised an orphaned baby crow myself. I had to put food and water into its mouth. Your pictures just reminded me of my crow that used to keep sitting on my shoulder. I love animals so its even lovelier to see this post. 🙂
