We have a family of robins who chose one of the canoes
for their home.
Their nest is built on the underside of the upside down craft.
The adults must have decided it was time to begin flying lessons.
The first lesson was practicing short hops at the edge of the pond.
When it was snack time the adult called until he
found the little one to share the tasty treat.
Eventually they both hopped up onto this beam,
went to the end..
and took off....
well..... the adult did!
After a while, the adult came back and they had a discussion.
It looked like it was a pretty serious chat!
Then they turned to hop to the end of the beam ..
Ready to take flight..
