There appear to be three baby robins in the nest over my patio, and they seem to be getting bigger by the moment. Mama is really kept hopping keeping them fed. :D

Interesting that what Americans call a robin we in the UK would recognise as from the thrush family. I presume it's the red breast which got it the name.

Yup, the American robin is a large thrush. n_n

Yes they do have red breasts. Think a bit more orangey than our robins, from what I remember from living in Canada.

Awww, they're cute! What lovely pictures you got, too - it can't have been easy to focus on them through the foliage.

Great pics!

It should be both parents feeding them actually. We had a couple of robin nests on our balcony over the years and they tag teamed one another. In fact, apparently the father's the one who stays the longest with the nearly grown babies while momma's off on a new nest. We once had the juvenile from the previous nest (somewhere else) showing up at the latest one on our balcony and making an incredible racket. Momma paid it no attention but papa gave it some food.
