Ames what a lovely article and pics, I need yr skills at home as we have a pair of Ashy Flycatchers (blue grey flycatcher) nesting on a ledge on the side of the house. Can’t get to it so haven’t seen the nestlings yet. During incubation the arriving parent would start calling loudly from afar all the way up to the ledge – then the parents would swop. Now both parents are busy feeding and they flit in and out without calling. Can’t wait to see the fledglings – wish I had the skills to photograph them like you have done with the robins.

Lovely story….. we loved having birds nest in our home and felt very parentish about the whole nesting thing…and so became very protective against the Shrike attacking! Well done and here’s to many more

Our robins here in Britain have red breasts, so I take it these are a variation of the species?

regarding your question “Have you ever seen such small chicks”, the answer is yes, even smaller – baby hummingbirds in a nest here in Arizona.
