Where I work a tree was being taken down when the nest was found. The landscapers ‘transplanted’ the nest in another tree. I was concerned about the babies, so after work I sat in my car and watched to make sure that Momma robin found the nest. Shortly, there she was. With a worm in her mouth, she stepped on the nest and the nest fell to the ground. I was very sad until I remembered that I had zip ties in the trunk of my car. I used a dozen ties to secure the nest. I placed the babies in the nest and once again I was in my car waiting for Momma. Sure enough, she showed up with dinner for the babies. All three babies fledged the following week.
