One morning about 3-4 weeks ago I saw 2 robins carrying twigs and string into a small bush near Jaiden's bustop. (remember to click on any pic if you want to enlarge it)



Here is what the robin's were doing, nuilding a new home. I decided to check the nest every few days.


I had to watch out for this guy. He watched me everytime I went to check the nest. After the eggs hatched he would dive-bomb me!! LOL


YAY! I found 4 beautiful blue robin's eggs in the nest.


When I checked the nest on this particular morning, there were only 3 eggs. :(


Sadly, I found this on the ground under the nest.


This is what I found about 12 days after I first spotted the eggs.



This is about a week later. This little chick was hungry and mama was sitting on the shed with breakfast!

I love this picture! The little baby's face is so sweet.



These 2 pictures were last week. When I checked the nest this morning tha babies were gone. They flew the coop!! Mom and dad both dive-bombed me today! One of them chased me all the way back to Heather's house! I'm assuming that the babies were still in the area!

I love seeing these little robin faces!! They are probably learning how to fly - hope the parents don't continue to dive bomb you!
