Fly Away

So quickly they grow, our porch light baby robins are flying. First there were three, then there were two.
While eating breakfast, I saw one perched on the edge of the nest. It fluttered down to the bench and on out to the trees in back of the yard.
 Climbing the ladder, there was only one baby left in the nest.
Not long after the second one flew away, so did the third. Now the nest sits up there on top of the porch light, empty. Debating about whether or not to remove the nest, we've put away the ladder for the season, the excitement of watching baby robins grow up is over, and we've reclaimed our deck space.
