Robin’s breeding hotspot

It’s the third time in two years Robin has been nesting in our area. The first time was in my backyard. The following two times were in my neighbour’s. The reason we managed to tame the Robin quite easily last time was because he needed a lot of food to feed his young, as I later found out. This year we even manage to hand feed the Robin using dried meal worms.This morning it’s the first time we saw one of the young Robin. Looks literally like a ball, even bigger in size than his parents! Maybe because the parents have been working out a lot fetching food for them lately. They seem to keep flying in and out of my backyard all the time throughout the day. In my view their work rate is just as amazing as the bees. Even such small creatures can demonstrate loving kindness. Isn’t it fascinating?Looks like all of them will be leaving the nest anytime soon, as I think the young Robins are learning how to fly now. Hope they will have their next brood here as well, as they can have multiple broods in one year.
