There's No Robbing a Momma Robin!

There's No Robbing a Momma Robin!

 

Along with the arrival of Spring, birds steadfastly prepare and then protect their egg ladened nests. Robins are extremely territorial, taking an aggressive stance to warn animals or people that come too close.

 

I have personally observed them in action while on the golf course, flitting in and out of bushes and trees or diving straight toward an animal, especially when trespassing into the restricted, Keep Out area.

 

McKenzie the Cat was strolling across our yard one day, when a Robin cut a direct path in the sky toward her with blazing speed! Surprised and shocked, she saw her, then jumped up, turning a complete flip in the air.

 

McKenzie seemed dazed, quickly leaving the aerial bombing range! It was amazing to witness and proof that there's no robbing a Momma Robin.

 

She'll learn ya, durn ya!

 

Industry tie-in:

You have a right to defend your business model, work ethic and reputation if anyone attempts to cause egregious harm. That is worthy of protecting at all costs because you created it and it is your livelihood!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! it is so funny as Cleo is now allowed to come outside with me when I plant. She sits behind bushes and watches the birds . I see them all flying about as she watches them, but I really think they know her from visiting our sliders . Happy Sunday

One thing for sure, never mess with a sitting momma bird.

Hi Wanda- what a cute post and yes, mamas can become very protective. I once felt a quick (and sharp) peck on my head when unknowingly got too close to the nest of a red-winged black bird.

Tux, our indoor cat, loved going out to the garden with us as we planted, weeded or picked fresh fruits and vegetables. He led the way to the door when time to go in! Seems the Cleo enjoys the great outdoors as well, Hannah Williams.

They are fierce when it comes to protecting their little babes, Bill Salvatore - East Valley. So are some of us human moms, at least I am!

Oh my gosh Kathy Streib, that had to be terribly painful, they have very sharp beaks! After watching Alfred Hitchcock's movie, The Birds, it took me a while to get over the fear of big, black birds.

I would have loved to see that bird chasing cat episode.  That Robin sounds pretty brave to me.

We have lots of robins in our yard and several nests, but momma bird does not let us even take a little peek in her keep out area!

One day, a baby Robin fell from the nest and I did not dare interfere. Momma was trying to teach it to fly. Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400!
