When Casey obsesses near a shrub or bush this week he's got his eyes on the last surviving robin chick, maturing on the run with the help of her parents, who ward off crows, jays, and even give Casey an earful if he gets too close.
The chick has been showing up down low in the ground cover and higher up in hydrangeas. With survival skills clicking he's been showing up each morning in spite of the odds.
So far so good. Our cute little guy, with a few breaks, just might make it through this week. Stranger things have happened.
