Robin bird nest

I didn't take my wreath down in time. When will the robin give me my front door back?

Robin eggs are incubated by the female for about 2 weeks before they hatch. Then she'll feed the birds for about 2 weeks in the nest.

Before you know it, they'll all leave at the same time. The young birds plop from the nest before they can fly and run across the lawn and hop to low bushes for protection.

They will follow their parents and beg food from them for another two weeks after fledging from the nest, and become capable of sustained flight.
