Day 12 - May 22, 2004

The same rhododendron bloom from 3 days ago is fully open now.

The babies are almost ready to leave the nest. One baby decided to stand on top of the another, whose tiny beak is the only part visible in this photo.

Luckily, this made it possible for us to better view the level of development. His (or her) tail is still short and his wings don't yet look ready to fly, but he almost looks the age that you sometimes see baby robins hopping about the yard with their parents. You can just see a small part of his orange and black spotted tummy.
