World's Ugliest Babies

Well, Mother Robin is being very protective now that her babies have hatched. I believe they were born sometime on Sunday, and I snapped these pictures that afternoon:Oliver is not allowed to be on the front porch until these little guys have learned to fly. Any guess how long that will be?

Robins take about 2 weeks from the time they hatch until they leave the nest. Just make sure they really can fly and have left the nest, and aren't hopping around somewhere...I have unfortunate experience that golden retrievers can find them easily at that stage.
