Betty’s Bay Birds

Rather fraught looking mother robin feeds her baby with cheese

Marianne Alexander has a weekend home in Betty’s Bay (where she grows wonderful indigenous plants). She writes:

“Within minutes of arriving at Betty’s Bay a mother robin is at the window asking for cheese. On this visit she brought her baby right onto the stoep and fed it at our feet while we watched.”

“The larger Cape Rock thrushes, above, were not as bold and carefully collected as many pieces of cheese as they could manage in their long beaks and flew off to feed their baby on the near by wall.”
