A fledgling robin

A couple of robins near the feeders caught my attention late this afternoon.  They were hopping around in an unusual fashion.

It turned out that they were mom and older fledgling.  She would do a bit of foraging and then return to her offspring, who was complete with the lovely spotted breast of older fledglings.

They were fun to watch, although I didn't manage to get a decent photo of the youngster's spotted chest!

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
