The highlight of the first weekend in May was Day 9 & 10 of Baby Robin development. The feathers are just amazing as they emerge.
The nest is getting crowded!
Check out that cute head and the feathers starting to emerge. The feathers on the wing look like a ruff around its little neck.

Time flies! But the baby robins aren’t yet. Nevertheless, they are growing and the most amazing thing is the feather development!
