If I had known that a baby could grow to ‘almost ready to leave the nest’ in only 13 days – by eating worms and bugs – well, I’d have raised my own children a lot differently…

    • You are right – bugs and earthworms are frowned upon – but apparently earthworms contain protein comparable to the protein you would receive from consuming eggs and cow’s milk. In some parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America, people regularly eat worms!

  1. I love watching the adults feeding the babies that almost as big as them. They’re so comical. Your Robins are pretty and look healthy. It won’t be long until you get your car back. 🙂

    • I was concerned about the babies when they fledged, but both of them (assuming they are MY baby robins) are gorging on berries in the trees in my yard.
      I know what you mean about children. Mine returned to the nest several times before finally taking flight for good.
