Woman rescues and befriends baby robin

Kara Twomey was walking her dog and saw a crow grabbing and flying off with a baby robin.

But the crow dropped the robin, so Kara rescued the fledgling and took him into her home.

Kara named the robin Squeaker, and nursed him back to health.

Little Squeaker began to hop around, then flew.

Kara kept Squeaker in her back yard, and Squeaker would come to her, stand on her shoulder or head.

Then Kara released Squeaker “into the wild”.

A month later, Squeaker returned to visit Kara.

We put him out and when mom worked in her garden, cheep chirp was right there waiting for her to dig up worms…sitting right beside her. When we had company, that Robin… Read more »
