How long until baby robins leave their nest?

Hello everyone,

We are in the uncomfortable situation of having recent hatched baby robins in a nest just outside the house. The bad news is that we were about to have some landscaping done. Now I could never in good mind allow it to take place as long as there are babies. So -- my question to you experts is what might be the estimated time between now (let's estimate the birds hatched yesterday, June 12th) and when we might comfortably be able to have the landscapers come?

I don't have a clue! One week? Two weeks? Three weeks? More? And, once they do leave the nest, I know they are on the ground for a few days before they can fly, so how long, total, do we have to wait?

Thank you!

Boulder Co

Good luck with your little ones. They should fledge within 14 to 16 days from hatching and then will probably stick close to the nest for just a few days more.

I'm glad I checked here! We're trying to do some work on our deck, and Mama Robin is sitting on 3 little hatchlings and one unhatched blue egg, but we'll wait until the little ones are out on their own. For now, my 7 year old and the dog are getting quite the thrill out of looking at them (although Mama's probably worried about the dog drooling - but they are totally safe and out of reach!). Thanks for the info!
