Being a Robin mom is hard work
Found this morning a robin fledgling sitting imobile in front of one of the neighborhood cats. I caught it, but the nest is high up in a cedar and I could not return it. Now I have it in a high forsythia bush sitting in one of those big garden tubs so it can't get out but the mother robin is afraid to get in. So now I dig for worms every half hour. Hard to do when it is dry.
I think the worms have a warning system. I found first a bunch of worms under some grass clippings I used as mulch, after a couple of forays no more worms. I dug, nothing to find. There go all my plans for tomorrow - I have to dig worms.
