Robin Chick

  • Robins nest yearly close to house under covered patio.  this yr they chose one of my hanging baskets which was well covered but as weeks went by & I was unable to water it much, it became more open and hot under the sun last chick fell/fledged (too hot) last weds’ ; has survived in the garden since then ( not sure how long I will though) chick likes to sit in the open! although my garden has lots of ground cover and trees; think she is blind in1eye. Can she survive/birds survive if partially sighted? 
  • Hi Phillappa
    It may stand a chance if the parents are still feeding but it is doubtful,any birds with such a disability will be at greater risk of predation by other birds and Cats.

  • In reply to Alan.:

    Thank you Alan
    I did think that would be the case; but she survived the neighbour’s cat yesterday and is looking very sparky this morning. I have a short video but don’t know how to upload it to here.
    Best wishes
  • There is a 4MB file size limit Phillippa so if it is larger than that you have to put videos onto Youtube first I'm afraid.
