Fledgling Robin (Turdus migratorius) killed by a bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana)

Published in 1993

The nesting season here at Drummond Switch in eastern Walker County always brings with it the serendipitous. I’m sure the same is true for the rest of the state, but since we are privy mostly to what transpires here at home, our experiences are most often confined to our own yard.

This past spring and summer my husband Bill and I watched a pair of American Robins (Turdus migratorius) as they built their first nest in an apple tree some distance from the house, the second in a pear tree down by the vegetable garden, and their third and final nest of the season in a tall loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) in the front yard near the water garden.
