American Robin (newly hatched)

Turdus migratorius

Description:

This posting is a follow-up to my posting "American Robin (Nesting)" of several days ago. The robins' nest this morning became the home to three brand-new, newly-hatched robins. The tiny birds are covered with a very light, downy cover of fuzz; their eyes are tightly closed. They are pretty much just little naked pieces of birds right now! The fourth egg is in the process of hatching.

Habitat:

Backyard. Under the porch.

Notes:

What a wonderful Mother's Day surprise to peek into the nest and see these little scraps of life! The pictures aren't all that great; it's a hard spot to get a camera into in the brief moments when Mama Robin leaves the nest.
