    Oh Christi.. They are indeed growing fast! They are so precious to watch aren’t they. Thanks for sharing them with us as they grow.. I look forward to seeing em.

    They are growing up — soon you will have more robins in the yard and the little guys when they first fly from the nest are so cute — and so vulnerable!

    We had one (not a robin) try to drink from the pond — and he fell in. I was there to rescue but he flew out and finally flew far away.

    He was so cute!

    Hi Christi,
    The robins are really growing, and I know you will miss seeing them. How wonderful that you got to share and take such amazing photographs. Thank you, i have enjoyed this adventure, as birds are so special to me, even though i have been trying to discourage a barn swallow from nesting on my porch, she and he have made such a mess with all that mud. LOL So much so that i can’t put my curtains up.Again thank you .
