This baby Robin was in middle of the road about to get hit, I safely picked the bird up and placed it near a shrub next to my home. He was not hurt just not able to fly just yet. He hung out at my house for 5 days while the mother came back to feed it. Its the most precious thing I had ever watched. She worked around the clock feeding this little fella. He was very friendly to be so young. He wanted to follow me around every time I went outside, I tried my best to ignore him for his sake. After about 5 days he was gone I hope he is flying somewhere! One of Gods little gifts to me was to be able to watch this little fella through my window.
So precious! What a wonderful fellow.
I have four fledglings I am monitoring since they hatched and they are just about to get to this one’s level. I can’t wait!
What a great story! You are a hero for putting him/her in a safe spot away from traffic, and letting the mom take over. That is exactly the right thing to do. This baby robin sure looks appreciative!
