Robins First Flight

I have posted these Robin's eggs at my other blog a couple of weeks ago.  We  documented their  growth which the Momma Robin wasn't happy about.  Every time I got up in the  porch sill, she would  raise  heck and try to  scare me.  There were four eggs but only three of them hatched.  

Below are the photos I took when  they were few days old.  They don't look very appealing, don't they?

Yesterday, we witnessed their first flight.  Two of them were very brave to take their first taste of freedom  and one of them  was left at the nest.  He followed them after the Mom went back to the nest and  encouraged him to fly.  It was very touching to see that both the Dad and Mom were there to protect the young robins as they figure out how to  fly.

This is the second time that we get to  see the development/growth of the baby birds.

When humans say, "They grow up so fast," they've got nothing on the robins!

That's a great learning experience to be able to watch the eggs hatch and see the hatchlings grow into a fine bird. I have't seen bird's egg up close in my life. Only in pictures and I love the color of those eggs - the right turquoise for me.

that is so neat that you were able to see a bird hatched from the egg till it had it's first flight. Robins egg are interesting, why is it blue when they don't have any blue color in their feather?
