Baby robins re-nested in Pickering

What a cool story! A woman from Pickering called us after a robins’ nest was blown out of a tree and she found the babies lying helpless in the grass. Our hotline experts advised her to create a makeshift nest by poking some drainage holes in a plastic container, putting in the old nest material and securing it back in the tree. Later she sent us these pictures of mom feeding her babies in their new nest. Nice work!
