This isn't going to continue much longer.  The kids are popping out of the nest.
Parent flew to ground under nest, because he dropped  the fecal sac, - splat,.. very distressing to a neat robin, because it's a clue to other birds that there's a nest hidden above.  Robins keep a clean nest and surroundings.
Funny image. Baby sitting on "popo",-  so big that its foot is folded up in front of it.
Feed kid, wait for fecal sac, catch it and take it away from nest site.
It's too hot to stand and wait all day, but I suspect this family will fledge shortly.  They're ready.
