Hi, Diane! Congrats on your brood of robin fledglings! It would have probably have been better for you in retrospect to have deferred the cleaning out of the nestbox till Aug/Sept as apparently they often lay a second clutch of eggs. My bird-book says - "The male may take over the feeding and care of one brood if a second clutch follows quickly." Though it doesn't say so, I imagine that would be the feeding of the fledglings after they have left the nest.
