Final Chapter, Protecting Your Stompin Grounds!

Actually I did not intend to write a final chapter to my blog post “Protecting Your Stompin Grounds”  but I could not resist.  This story is non fiction with a small amount of assumption on my part…I’m good at that!   Also it has a happy ending!

To begin where I left off would be to say the male Robin did in fact flourish feeling triumphant over his nemesis. How do I know? A week or two following the male robin drama I walked through the house to unlock the patio door, looked down and there was a baby robin looking at his reflection in the door .   He was lost and thirsty with no parents around to take care of him.   I ran to the kitchen sink and got a bowl of water and a syringe.  I pulled out my syringe,  filled it with water and bent down over the little guy,  he opened his mouth wide and drank the water,  3x.   A loud ruckus arose in close proximity, guess those parents were around after all.   At this point I decided to relinquish my babysitting job,  but the good sitter that I am,  I kept close watch.

The baby robin made his way up a piece of wood onto the top of our smoker where his mommy started to come and feed him and his daddy kept watch.  He was still there in the morning,  mommy still feeding him.  I checked again around 1200.  He had made his way into the yard. I was frightened so I was hoping he would get on the rail of the split rail fence,  he did just that.  His mom and I were on the same page, of course.  When he was not on the fence later that afternoon,  I am sure mommy had directed him to go to the huge pine tree where the branches are low to the ground so he could hop and flutter from branch to branch and take cover for nightfall was coming soon.
I know this because mommy and I were on the same page.

Happy Ending!

Mommy and Daddy robin were successful in protecting their family and stompin grounds.  We humans must protect our family and our stompin grounds!
