I was excited to snap a photo of this precious robin chick.  Momma robin had taken a few minutes for a well-deserved snack.  While she was away, I took this picture with a telephoto lens from a safe distance.  The one chick is easily visible and there are at least two other chicks….maybe even three.  I am especially thrilled that the babies are doing so well because Momma Robin constructed her nest in a high traffic area near our garage.  I’ve been wondering whether these chicks would really survive.  So far, so good.  Time will tell.
