As spring moved into summer we now see the bob, bob, bobbing junior American Robins feeding on lawns, fields, and in city parks.
The nestlings have flown — more like outgrew — the nest and are now testing their moxie and independence in the wild.
These photos were taken over a period of a couple of weeks, up until one day the fledglings were no longer in the nest.
Robins are the largest North American thrushes and are common throughout Mexico, the U.S. and in Canada when it warms.
