Have you seen my mommy?



* I know it's time for these baby Robins to fend for themselves, still I feel a wince of sadness when they are looking and calling for their mommy!

Great photo! I had two big baby robins in my yard yesterday all jittery and calling for their mom but Mom was right there to watch over them. So sweet!

Good shot! He's justing waiting for Mom to arrive with a big, fat juicy worm.

How cute!
We checked our robin's nest and they are all gone!
I had one blurry picture of the babies in the nest a few days ago and went to go take another, clearer picture and they have flown the nest.
So, I didn't capture them.
Dang it!

Poor little Robin! They have to grow up fast and learn how to take care of themselves. Great shot!

A really cute pic Shelley.

Aw,he is so cute.

What a sweet baby. I think he (or she?) looks like he's got some independence in his eyes...

I know just how that little one feels. It is sad but that's how they learn I guess. I just wish these noisy Starlings would stop depending on their moms. They are the noisiest things!! That little Robin makes me sad. He looks like my Ricky does now. Missing his mom. But he's getting better each day.

Your breaking my heart this morning Shelley. But what a great picture you took of this little bird. He/she has the look like he really is thinking what you said. Nice sharp picture and I love his tail feathers in the birdbath water! Sweet.

Oh what a cutie pie, Shelley... I'm sure his Mama is close by somewhere.

I saw a baby Chickadee and a baby Cardinal on my deck this morning. Of course, I didn't get any pictures.

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Cute! I think I missed baby songbird season. :( Glad I can see it from others.

It's a tough old world out there. I love the look of these baby American Robins. Our smaller ones are a speckly brown for quite some time after fledging. Great photos Shelley!

Little Robins seem to have more trouble breaking away than almost any other bird. What a sweet and poignant photograph.

Hi,
It is excellent to see the results of life on all blogs! Great picture of a nice robin juvenile. I hope I will soon copy you but with the local species of course.

Great photo. So sweet.Sharon

Elaine said...

Lovely photo and caption. We have a lot to learn from the parenting skills of the robin. She kicks the kid out of the nest and he stays out. Why doesn't that work in the human world?

Gotta love those baby robins. They are so vocal too! How cute.

holdingmoments said...

All alone in the great big world.
He does look a little sad.

Eve said...

So sweet Shelley!! I hear ya!!

Shelly: How very cute. I see them bouncing around and still following Mom.

troutbirder said...

Yup growing up can be tough.

Tina said...

He is a cutie and I can see how you want to go out and help him find his mommie...He will do fine and in no time be plucking large juicy worms from your backyard!!
You really managed to capture him looking like he is lost..great shot!!

Cindy said...

Poor baby Robin. I feel the same way.

With so many baby birds around it's like one big nursery out there! And they are all so cute, except the sparrow babies : /

Nice shot Shelley!

Bird Girl said...
