    son comes over to weed eat...comes in with a camera and this is the pic he took:


    [​IMG]

    that is a carolina wren's nest in the guard of the weed eater


    so then he finds a baby robin out of the nest...so this saga begins

    we have to get a ladder....

    he climbs in tree....

    [​IMG]

    finds that robins suck as nest builders and there is another baby in the nest getting ready to fall out of the big hole in the nest...so we begin nest repair

    [​IMG]

    he didnt wanna put a hot plastic bowl under the nest without nesting materials

    [​IMG]

    of course he forgets the nesting material and dumps it going up the ladder...we replace it....

    i hand him the baby...

    look real close on the right hand side...yeppers that is the baby in the nest flying out when he puts its sibling back in
