The Robin's Nest...

This spring I had a Robin build her nest on our back porch. I waited until the two babies fledged before I would let anyone use the porch.



After they fledged I went out to remove the nest and reclaim our porch. I saw another nest and decided to remove it as well - thinking I hadn't noticed it since I had been staying off the porch all spring.
The nest had three warm eggs in it. I noticed a fourth egg was smashed on the floor of the porch.


Now I thought we would have the porch back by summer...but I would never want to worry a mother robin away from her nest.
It appears that two of the three eggs hatched.

Mother and father both glare at me if I happen to step out on the porch.

I just hope the nest is empty by the end of the month when we have our family BBQ...

Oh, precious! We had some flycatchers have two rounds of babies on top of the light on our porch. So sweet! I love the color of the robin's eggs in your pictures, I'd love a room that color. ~Vonnie

I am currently at a stand-off with the robins as they attempt to build a third nest this year...I want my porch back!
