Robin report....

Here they are, three hatchlings and one egg left to hatch.
I didn't know how far along the eggs were so I'm glad I checked in on them.  It's been raining and Mrs. Robin has been faithfully sitting in her nest with her chicks keeping them nice and cozy, that is, until I disturb them.
She does get feisty when I come to peep in.

She was really giving me "the dickens" this afternoon.
I've been sighting more feathered emigrants, but with the cloudy, dark days and drippy weather, I've not got a good picture off.  I'll try again tomorrow.  I did manage to click a pretty Bleeding Heart just coming into bloom in my flower bed.

I am always amazed that something so beautiful and intricate-looking could live where I do, but it comes faithfully every spring to tell me it is possible.

  7. That mama is so slim. Why are my robins so fat? Too many worms?

  8. I'm really enjoying your bird photos, Jody. So cool that you get to observe hatchlings! And a Western Tanager, too! I've seen an Eastern or two this year, and they're pretty dramatic as well. But no Westerns since our trip to Mt. St. Helens are a few years back. Is your home in his migration path, or is he slightly off course?

    And you still have the warblers to go! They're ending here now. Enjoy!

  9. Amazing and beautiful! I can't believe you got such a closeup of the baby robins. Watch the mama and see how busy she will be in the feeding of those babies!
    The pink bleeding heart looks so pretty with the rain drops.
    Great photos!

  12. We had a robin build her nest in our barn too this spring and it was wonderful to see the amazing eggs and to be in awe of the newly hatched chicks and then amazed again at how fast they grew and then were off...
