My fundraising

I'm trying to fundraise by watching a wild bird grow up but it's a little harder than I thought.

I'm not surprised you're finding it hard. A robin for example, takes 8 days to build it's nest, lays 3 eggs, takes 12 to 14 days to incubate the eggs.

The babies are fed as many as 200 times per day! Feeding starts around 4 am and goes to around 8 pm. Nests are cleaned several times as well. Then its time for the baby birds to learn to fly.

Raising babies is long, hard work! And many birds have two broods.
Happy birding!
