As I was sitting by my window messing around on the Internet I heard a clamor in the yard and turned around to see...two adorable, fresh out the the nest, fat, fluffy American robin fledglings hopping around behind their parent.
I'd been hearing them begging for food over the past several days and now they must have taken the plunge and leapt from the nest. They can actually get around pretty well, even fly a bit--one chased its parent all over the yard begging for food, and the other flapped off to the wrong side of the fence.
I am sorry that the photos are so crappy--taken through my window (the storm window is still on so actually taken through two sheets of glass), but I think just a little bit of the cuteness comes through.
