A welcome visitor!

While sitting on our porch my husband spotted a bird fly into a sentinel pine right by the house. He got up and noticed it was on a nest. We decided it was a mother robin.


It’s hot, so the open beak is part of heat regulation (common for birds). A bit later I noticed she had left so I went to the upper deck to see what I could see. I spied three “robin’s blue” eggs! Hard to get the camera in for that, but here are two of them (okay, part of two of them):



This is likely their last brood of the season, and I’d like to know how we missed the first one (or two)?????

Anyway, we’ll be keeping an eye out!
