One survivor

Mother Nature can be cruel. Of the two remaining robin babies the alpha Baby fledged nest successfully. Second baby got snarled in nest material and dangled upside down outside nest. It did not survive.  Alpha Baby made it across path to another part of garden attended to by Papa.  It hopped around, flew at low level, was most comfortable resting in low bush. This is standard with new fledglings.
To find this baby in days to come I'll have to hear the call for food. It may be very hard to find this kid again. It's a big world for a baby robin.
