This is the first time we've had to help a robin recuperate. This one had a hard landing after hitting the side of the house on the weekend. When I went outside to check on it, another robin was bobbing nearby. As if they were together? Do robins bond like that?
We placed it in our now-empty bird feeder attached to the deck railing then determined there were no injuries. It took the bird the longest time to come around; if birds get concussions, I'd diagnose that injury. Eventually, Dwayne went out to see how it was doing and when it flew a short distance from the deck, its friend -- or mate -- was right there. As if watching for it.
