Dad Feeding Robins

Well I decided that today was the day that I should try and get a remote photo of the babies feedind. The shed door has been open during the day over the weekend to let out some of the heat and both adult robins have been happy to fly in and out.

I set up my 20D with 70-200 with radio remote on my tripod inside the shed and waited patiently outside looking out for the robins to prepare to take the photo, once one had flown inside i could see through the side window when it reached the nest.

After an hour and half of waiting for the right moment I captured this photograph.

More updates on the baby birds soon..

Baby Robins Update

Looks like there might be some bad news today, I've noticed that one of the birds is in the same position as it was yesterday, head back and no movement..

I'll take another look tomorrow and see if there is any sign of life.

Oh yeah, looks like one of them has a hitch-hiker

Hopefully get out somewhere nice so I can get some nice shots of the 'Bus' as the kids have now nicknamed it..

Well they look more alive today than yesterday, i think they've grown as well, and can see 4 babies today..

On another note, got a new batmobile to carry the troops and gear around in, I'll post some nice photos over the weekend.

edit: looks like i'll have to update the script on my laptop - just noticed that the © is for 2007!
