Feed Me!!

This baby Robin was relentless! He chased his mom all over the yard begging to be fed.





She complied but told him he needs to grow up and get his own food!

Hi Shelley,
What a cute picture! I have never seen a baby Robin, I don't believe. It's amazing how big they are and yet still expect the parents to take care of them...sort of like some children.

Mildred said...

Looks like he had plenty to say about that!!! Cute pics.

Great photos! I know there has to be a nest in the trees somewhere around my yard, but haven't been able to see it. I hope I'll see a few babies bouncing around the yard along with mom and pop.

I would feed those little guys any day! WONDERFUL SHOT!
Happy Spring dear friend up North.

Shelly: Nice capture, I saw this yesterday also but mine must have been a little older and didn't stay that close.

I love these photos Shelly!! Ha! I have never seen a baby Robin. I have so many Starlings that no other birds want to come near. They are so noisy. The babies chase the parents all over the place. I don't know how they keep up with so many mouths open, begging for food..

What beautiful color. I have seen baby robins but never with the orange starting to cover their breasts. Really neat pictures!

The Birdlady said...

Kids always get their way if they yell loud enough!

Shelley that bouncing baby speckled Robin you captured is the Robin version of the "Mad Bluebird". Great shot, cute commentary!

Baby robins are a favorite of mine. I love how they chase the mom and beg for food. Such a cute little fella with his speckles all over his chest!!The color was excellent!

Deb said...

I love watching (and hearing) the babies being fed - oh their poor Mums :-) Love baby Robin's freckled chest - so cute!

Tina said...

I love the polka dotted baby breast!
I don't think I have ever seen a baby robin up close like that, so thanks for the wonderful pictures of one!

Salty said...

Cute shots Shelley!

We have lots of young birds fledging now. Some are popping out of the nest a little too young to fly and the parents are creating quite a fuss while feeding them on the ground.

Deborah Godin said...

Those babies know just how to chirp and flutter to get their way!

Montanagirl said...

Baby Robins are the cutest. I think they have voracious appetites! Cute photos.

Cathy Clementz said...

He looks like he's been fed well! So far, we've only seen baby pine siskins.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I love the colors in these shots. My mom has been telling me all about her "Baby Huey" robin who is still harrassing his mom. Too funny!

Daisy said...

HA! For some reason, this post made me think of my sons always asking,"What's for dinner, Mom?" and "When's dinner, Mom?" :D

Jenny said...
