So, the young robins flew off early last week. About 10 days ago, I noticed they had grown significantly and were looking rather more robin-like.
Both cats took notice as well. When I first opened the window to get a shot of them in their nest (to avoid the window glare) Benson came trotting up.
I quickly closed the window to avoid him either getting a snack or making fool of himself by falling out of the window trying to get to the little fledglings.
So, they’re gone and the nest is empty. Depending on what tomorrow’s weather brings (every time I check the forecast it’s whipsawed between rain, possibly heavy, and no rain but cloudy) I might get a chance to dig up the holly tree and do some other landscaping fun.
