A feast fit for a fledgling

What: A fledgling American Robin being fed by a parent, perched within the protection of the hedges. (The young individual was not in a nest and I didn't spot the nest or any siblings nearby.) The adult made ceaseless and hurried runs from the fledgling's open beak to the ground directly below and back up again, always with a little worm, grub, or bug to bear. Who knew the dirt was brimming with such bounty!
Where: Arborvitae hedges, east edge of Arikidea's quadrant
Observers: Abbie 
Date/Time: June 1, 2011 at about 5:30 pm
Conditions: Mostly sunny
