This afternoon in the courtyard, little robin baby Seymour (Niki named him) was hopping around (didn't see Albert the house sparrow--again, Niki named him too), and I was wondering if he might have been abandoned. Lo and behold, Mama Robin Helen (again, Niki's work) swooped in with a mouthful of earthwormy goodness! How I wish I could've gotten a photo or even video on my phonecam, but it all happened so fast!
Here's another picture of Seymour:
I love that stubby butt!
