In Our Garden - EyesInTheWild

A PAIR OF ROBINS BROUGHT THIS FLEDGLING INTO OUR POND FOR ITS SUCCESSFUL FIRST BATHING LESSON. LAST YEAR WE WATCHED AS THREE ROBIN NESTLINGS TOOK THEIR FIRST CLUMSY FLIGHT FROM A NEST ON OUR GARAGE. TO OUR HORROR, ONE OF THEM DROPPED - PLOP! - INTO OUR NEIGHBOR'S POND! ROBERT IMMEDIATELY LEAPED OVER THE WALL AND SCOOPED UP THE SOAKING FLEDGLING AND PLACED IT WHERE A PARENT QUICKLY JOINED IT.
