Sweet Robin Couple Becomes Parents (Videos)

Hello to all and to all a good day! Boy, do we have a treat for you today! It's not every day we get to witness the miracle of new life being brought into this world. Birth and life in the animal kingdom looks veryyy different from our human world. The American Robin goes through the (not so simple!) process of laying and incubating eggs until their bird babies are ready to hatch and enter the world! Birds are awesome.

The American Robin is an icon of American springtime, known for their bright orange bellies and beautiful songs! Fun fact: the American Robin is the state bird for Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. These birds have clearly captured  the attention these states' residents, and today they've captured ours as well! Let's watch this magical process.

    Birdy update from our source: this female robin is hard at work laying eggs. She lays about one per day and exerts a lot of effort for each egg. This American robin is working on her second brood already this spring! Good for you, mama! The juvenile birds from her first brood are happily flying around the OP's Massachusetts' yard. In the meantime, mom and dad share a tasty snack.

    This mama is in full incubating mode! We can tell by her movements. As you can see, there is lots of sitting and wiggling going on here to ensure the eggs are warm and cozy.

    Birdy is panting! It looks to us like she may be laying an egg. That is one hard working bird mama. According to our source, this bird mama usually lays one egg per day. She's laid one so far, that means more are coming!
