InkTober 2021. Day 27.
With raw nerves, parents watch as their baby “lift off.”
In the spring, the robins’ nest and then several weeks later, a jaw gaping hungry bird appears. And a few weeks after that, we see fledgelings.
I have to say I get a little nervous about the fledgelings. They either leap off of tall ledges or hop on the ground waiting for flight to happen. Sometimes they are on the grass for a long time. That makes me a little nervous. I am relieved when they do take off.
