Robin Nest Update

Well, you know I couldn’t resist peeking into our little robin nest, so when the bird flew away for a few minutes I was able to snap another picture.  All of the precious blue eggs have hatched and we have four adorable hatchlings.  I think in another week this nest is going to get quite crowded!

We also have some friends who moved into our birdhouse and I see a blue head peeking out ever so often.  Her nest is built as there are pieces of straw and twine on the ground.  Here is a picture of her singing a heavenly song on top of the birdhouse finial.

Hi Donna
Yours is one of the few blogs I can get to download never mind bring up the comment box.
The babies are adorable and so much fun to watch. With the grackles nesting here regularly, the robins seem to go elsewhere. Earlier this week while gardening near the tree of one next, both parents kept flying at my head. I reminded them who the gardener here was and to be patient. :-)

Hi Donna, thanks for visiting today. Your container flowers are gorgeous. Love the next. I tried to get a closeup like that of a Mockingbird next but the mother had a fit. I did get some a few days later zooming in on the next. I'll post it later. Have a great week. Hugs, Janet
