Yard — a word worth a 1000 pictures (#65)

Oh no! Tonight when I came home the neighbourhood kids let me know that 2 of the baby robins were out of the nest. The kids wanted to know if they should help. I told them to let the Mother try first and to keep their distance so that the Mother feels comfortable returning but at the same time to keep an eye on them. They wanted to touch the babies but I recommended against it because I'd heard that some wild animals reject their babies if there is someone else's smell on them.
