You were wise not to stage an intervention on the juvenile robins and, even wiser, to prep for a possible tornado strike. Peterborough isn't that far from you.

It is comical watching the juvenile bluebirds flitter about our back yard. They can fly, after a fashion, but their judgement in alighting takes a while to develop. House finches seem to be more adept when they fledge - not great, but better than the bluebirds.


I get juvenile robins on the ground here ALL THE TIME. When I find them before the dogs do I will generally try to move them into the brush line or under a bush rather than let them set in the middle of the yard. From there they're on their own, but I've seen one or both parents feeding them, so some of them likely make it.
