Tightly Packed, The Fledgling

May 24, 2013: Today is cold! I have been outside all morning with a garage sale to sell my daughter’s baby stuff. She is entering grade school and it is time to make room for the new things in our tightly packed lives.

Speaking of tightly packed, last week I visited my Mom with my daughter in tow. She had the day off of school due to parent teacher conferences and she had not yet visited Grandma’s new house. She was so excited and loves that her Grandma is nearby. Following lunch around the table, Mom had updated us on the condition of the robin’s nest. The three eggs, with the Mother’s care, had been exchanged for three baby birds that were now getting ready to leave the nest.

My mom found her camera and I took pictures of the birds. It was a nest that once protected and enclosed them. Now the birds tightly packed, had tails and bills hanging over the sides. It was only through cooperation that they managed to stay inside.

Complete with feathers and hungry appetites the robins have since left the nest. And with that I present ‘The Fledgling’. A young robin ready to take on the world.
