We are so happy Mama Robin felt the tree
directly outside our dining room window was
a suitable spot to build her nest.
We couldn't have asked for a better
observation spot. At first, she would fly away
if any one of us approached the window, making
it quite difficult to get a good picture of her sitting
on her eggs.
Though now, she must be feeling a bit more
comfortable with our curiousity. She will stay
if we approach slowly, but she
doesn't move a muscle and keeps
a watchful eye on us.
The eggs hatched about 1-2 weeks ago. It's been
amazing watching them grow.
They went from looking nothing like a bird at all
to these cute, fuzzy creatures.
I thought the fuzz on these sweet baby robins
in the photo above was a great match for
timberwolf, this week's color on Project 64.
Head on over and check out some of
other great finds!
These photos were taken just after Mama fed them.
I've tried to capture them with their little mouths open,
but have been unsuccessful to this point.
Mama might not know it, but she's got
four extra sets of eyes watching to
make sure her babies stay safe in their nest.
