Protective Robins

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,811

A cat got hold of a baby Robin and was then banned to the house. The owner managed to place the baby back into the tree but not in the nest as it could not be found.The parents continued to feed it.

When the cat was let back into the garden after a few days several Robins arrived in the garden appearing to offer support to the baby and parents

The impression we are given of Robins is that they are solitary and feisty birds

Everyone is just trying to be Happy.....So lets help Them.

    It's also quite common for Robins to feed other birds offspring, they are well known for their maternal/paternal instincts. They often fly into our house and tweet at me for food, lovely little birds.
