    My Mom and I once raised Robin that fell out of the nest and the Mother abandoned it. Mom made paste of hard boiled egg mixed with some milk and breadcrumbs and we fed it on a paint brush to get it down the throat. When it grew older, we added some raw hamburger meat to the mix which it gladly devoured! Once he was able to fly, we released him in a yard of some friends who lived in a bird sanctuary.

    What a wonderful story Winnie! I am going to make a copy of your post & keep it in my bird file/journal/notes…just in case. Your Mom sounds like a smart lady with great maternal instincts. That must of been an amazing experience for you?

    And MaryJane, this picture of the Warbler & Robin sitting so close together in the same tree is a real keeper. You were truly fortunate to realize that moment & capture it in digital time. Thanks for sharing.
