Cowart's Common Room
They've all gone

My little robins, four of them in a tiny nest in the watering can, I've watched them getting bigger and more feathery as the days went on, yesterday they were stretching their wings and moving about a lot, this morning they have all gone. I'm not entirely convinced they were big enough to fly, but there's no sign that the nest has been raided, it's still perfect and there are no feathers or mess. I just hope they've flown.

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Oh Kitty I do so hope they have gone and not been taken . . . had the nest been raided there would have been a mess and feathers . . . so fingers crossed.

Ivy's Avatar Had the same thoughts about our blackbirds two weeks ago. When they find out how to fly they are gone for good aren't they?

Lovely picture and story, Kitty.

It's so cold and wet, our Robins haven't even got around to nesting.

Re:
Dancing Dog's Avatar I'm sure there would have been signs if all was not well. They just seem to up and go so quickly.
