When I last left off I had just got photos of the baby robin chicks outside my bedroom window after they just hatched. See here. Last time I looked there were two babies. Here are some more photos of their little bird lives from days 2-5 (estimated).
Now wait!! There are three! Guess that third triplet birdy just took his time to hatch. I think its the one on the far left - not able to hold his head up straight. Leaning on the side of the nest for support. The one in the middle is the oldest I think. He was born first and seems to get all the food.
Look at those tiny wings with tiny feathers!
I spy one of those little blue eggs. Not sure what it's doing there. I think the parents normally clean out the nest of the empty shells so maybe its an unborn chick.
Now brace yourselves for some real true life nature. If you were squeamish with those worms photos above you probably won't like this. Nature is crazy.
The baby chick is pooping!
Now the parent eats it.
Yep. According to this site it's totally natural for the parents to do that the first few days since something about their undeveloped digestional system and its just still food, not waste yet. Totally weird. Aren't you glad humans have diapers?
