seems a bit late in the season for robin chicks

but out in the backyard, up in the magnolia tree, we have a robin's nest. in it are at least 2 and probably 3 1 to 2 week old chicks. i always thought they were a springtime event. must be all that global warming.
anyway, they are a loud bunch, raising hell if they don't get fed often, but really squawking when one of the parents shows up with a tasty treat like a cricket or worm.
i climbed up onto a ladder to take some pictures. since the nest is up a ways, and snuggled down into the branches, i couldn't get a straight on shot without disturbing the nest, which i wouldn't do.
so here are a couple of shots taken the other day, showing at least one of the chicks, and a parent.
as always, click picture for other size choices

I bet robins lay at least 3-4 clutches a season and more in a temperate area like California.

Bet reddog is right. Out here in New England I think them red, red, robins have already went bob, bob bobin along straight to sunny Florida. Nice post. The old muser
