But, the remaining three are doing splendidly! They have a good mama who brings them food constantly. And during the last couple of days, which were cold and raining, one parent was gathering food while the other was sitting on the babies, wings spread out to keep the rain off of them.
Today it's sunny and warmer, and the babies are up and down, stretching their wings, and making more vigorous peeping noises. By my count, they are only a few days away from getting out of the nest. I guess flight training will be happening soon? I did read today that most Robins do not make it past their first year of life, which is very depressing.

I want to thank the few people who participated in the Quiz of Qs. Hopefully next time, more people will at least venture a guess! These three did make the attempt, and did very well. Now, go visit their blogs!
