We're Expecting......!!!

Remember the first Robin of Spring?

She's going to be a mother!!! (At least I like to think it's the same Robin!)

We discovered a mud and grass nest tucked behind our front porch light fixture last week!

We noticed that a Robin was flying into the nest alot so when she flew off, my DH put a mirror up behind the nest, I got the camera and this is the picture of the contents!!

Three pretty blue eggs!!!

I was fearful that Mama wouldn't return, but she did. She faithfully sits up there unless we disturb her!! I tried to take a picture from inside the house, but she'd have none of that and
flew off.... then stared at the house from a nearby branch for awhile!

Robins can have around 4 eggs in a nest or as many as will fill the nest so we are wondering if she's laid more. At any rate, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the babies!


  1. Hope you are home when the babies come! There's a robin on the nest in the tree at the end of our deck!

  2. Love the blue in those eggs!
