It's like a nature preserve out there

A mockingbird nest in my crape myrtle, baby chipmunks around the driveway, and this little fellow on my patio this morning. He's a newly fledged robin, probably out for his first foray from the nest. He has been sitting on my patio table for a little while, waiting for Mama and Papa to bring him some nice worms.
Every once in a while he opens his little beak expectantly, as if that will make lunch come sooner. He just let out a little cheep, as if to say "Hurry up!"
