I guess this is Nest #1 Flyaway Day here in Kentucky. The robins that were in the nest this week have decided to fly away today.
I did get a couple of photos of the event. The second-to-last one is seen thinking about leaving, and then the last bird in the next flew away from the porch when I saw it, and hid from me on the tree for awhile.
The whole family exploded with joy as Bird #2 flew into the trees. They were singing, swooping, and generally making a racket to welcome their new playmate. It was the first time I'd ever seen this!
Bird #3 kept walking away from me like squirrels do, around the tree, hoping I would leave it alone and not take another picture.
All in all, it was a fun morning! Rickey says the robin will be back to lay some more eggs soon. We might have up to three hatchings here.
All for now,
