American Robin (Turdus migratorius)






This male Robin faithfully sat on this nest along with the female taking turns. Once the chicks were born, both parents spent most of their waking hours hunting food for their babies! It's no wonder as the babies had a voracious appetite! Even walking past the nest would send the chicks into a frenzy - heads would pop up, mouths opened squawking for food! Notice the middle chick - his mouth is all ready full, but he's SO excited he's trying to get the next grub!
