Belleville, IL Photographer | A Baby Bird

My baby robin. I think I’ll name him, Grumpy.

A baby robin has been around our house for the past week or so. We got home from an out-of-town trip on a cool beautiful evening, brought in our luggage and then I grabbed the watering can to give a drink to the flowers and vegetable garden. When I came around to our back yard, a little bird sat on one of our patio chairs just cocking his head at me curiously. “I’ll grab my camera! Although… I’m sure he will be gone when I get back…” To my surprise, he was still there! So I slowly edged closer to him,  snapping pics, until I was only a few inches away!

A week later, the little guy is still around! Watches me as I water the flowers, hops around our patio and backyard. He is strangely friendly, even though his spray of gray feathers gives him the look of an unkempt grumpy old man. Such a small thing that makes me smile 🙂
