Little Ms. Robin Saga

Every spring, a mother robin builds a nest somewhere in our yard . . . .

. . . . this year, she chose the arbor that’s over our garage door.

How sweet, no?

Well, KIND OF.

Since this photo op, our now-adolescent little Ms. Robin has left her nest,

as all adolescent robins do.

Tragedy was narrowly averted on Tuesday,

when she obliviously hopped to + fro in the grass behind our garage.

Suddenly, I heard her robin mother + robin relatives squawking like crazy!

What a racket!

Seems our murderous neighbor cat, Charlie, lurked nearby!

Cue: ME, ‘to the rescue’ . . .

. . . frantically catching little Ms. Robin (much to her + her robin posse’s dismay)

+ depositing her safely within our fenced backyard.

Since then, I’ve chased her a couple more x’s

+ re-deposited her within our fence,

dug up some earthworms + attempted (but failed) to feed her said-same,

+ finally dashed to the grocery store for a bag of wild bird seed.

I’ve not yet seen her this a.m.

(yikes — we had a couple torrential downpours yesterday!) . . .

. . . but maybe she’s wisely giving this interloper a wide berth

at the birdbath!

Fingers crossed she’ll show up again, soon!
