Robin update

Someone said that if you doubt that God has a sense of humour, just look at the hippopotamus. I think baby robins would also qualify. Our four small nestlings look like baby pterodactyls, especially when they pop up and down in the nest and try out their wings. The biggest and most athletic one is especially goofy--he looks like he's doing aerobics. They've also gotten very loud as they've gotten bigger! We used to keep our eyes open when we were outside, to see when one of the parents would fly up with a meal; now their excited shrilling is enough to let us know that room service has arrived.
