All Things Robin

I’m getting a bit excited because a robin is nesting in the eaves across the way, and it seems that any day now the eggs should hatch. And this particular robin had built and re-built the nest at least three times before finally settling in. I actually saw a partially-built nest slide off at one point. Mother knows best, though, and this nest looks sturdy.

This morning’s photo. All seems well.

She keeps her beak open to cool off on hot days.

Meanwhile, a few days ago, another robin was perched on a fence post doing a fandango. I’ve done a previous post like this, but robins seem to have mesmerized me, and I can’t help but doing another!

  1. Love that guy doing the fandango. We are deep into robins here too. Stefan began construction on a front porch in the fall, and this spring we discovered a robin’s nest up in its eaves – construction came to a halt while she fledged those birds – and now she is sitting on 3 more eggs! Robins can have many little families in one spring. Who knew?? Looking forward to your pictures of the little ones

  2. She’s standing on the edge of the nest right now, so I’m wondering what’s up. I see the nest at an angle, and may only be able to see the beaks of the nestlings when they hatch. Fran
