We have had a visitor for a while... It was kind of funny as I was putting in fake flowers
about 3 weeks ago in some baskets I have that hang on the back porch. About a week later
I saw that the flowers I had in one, was on the deck. I went to place them back and saw
that in the basket now was a nest. So I put the flowers around the basket. And we have
seen a nervous robin, hovering around the basket. Going from garage roof to the porch.
Why she chose the basket next to the door where all the traffic was, I don't know.
But this week I am going to have some remodeling done at the back door which
is in the area of the basket. So after great thought, I moved the smaller two first.
Then I put the big one with the nest in it.. next to them.. Hoping Momma would
notice. What I had was a worrysome robin mom... So moved the basket near where
it was, but away from the hammering area...
When I moved the basket, I looked in (there wasn't anything there weeks ago.
And lo and behold.... there was two mouths open and the biggest eyes I ever saw.
The babies had fur feathers..and there was another blue egg... so these guys had
to be born this am or yesterday...(Saturday)
I was concern as I didn't know if the mom would accept the new place where I put
the basket.. but after an hour, I looked out the door and there she was ....in the basket..
