Q:

Where do baby robins go after they leave their nest?

A:

Newly fledged robins usually take cover on the ground after leaving the nest. They need about two weeks to become capable of sustained flight. During this time, they follow their parents and beg them for food. Following this period, they stay near the home nest for another four months.

Full Answer

Robins are altricial birds, meaning that they are hatched in an immature state and depend on care from their parents to survive. Robins' eggs take about 14 days to hatch, and both parents care for the resulting nestlings. The young robins have a full coat of feathers and are ready to fly at about 2 weeks old.
