Robin Update (end of April 2010)

When I got home from the Paducah quilt show, I rushed to my bedroom window to check on the progress of my baby robins. This is what I found...
Well, I guess I should clarify that a bit. My friend and I went to check the nest, and three mostly grown up birds stared back at us and flew down to the ground. When I first started writing about the robins, I told you there were four eggs, and I only saw three babies. This is the egg that didn't hatch. I did later see one of the babies in a bush by my window. The picture isn't great, but I thought you might like to see how one of "the kids" turned out.
Now...while I'm on the subject of birds and babies...this is what I found outside my bedroom window when I went to the Paducah quilt show. The bird had built this nest between some wood and the glass of the window. It was literally like having the view of a nest cut in half. This would have been great for an elementary science class observation. This is what I saw when I arrived...
...and this is what I saw the day I left...
Now...how cool was that!
