Bringing Up Baby Robins

Raising baby Robins is trickier than you might think. They can’t digest worms when they first hatch, for example, anymore than a newborn infant could eat filet mignon. So what do they eat? They don’t have diapers. How do the parents keep the nest from getting completely gross in the first two days? After two weeks, each nestling is eating 14 feet of worm a day, so the parents are worm hunting at warp speed.
