Four Baby Birdies Sittin' In a Tree.

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.

  4. These are fabulous captures! And I'm not surprised about mama having 4 sets of eyes. Most mamas do, don't they? ;-)
