Robin's Nest

6 posts in this topic

Here are some photos of a Robin's Nest just outside my kitchen window. Sunday April 10th there were 2 eggs; Monday a 3rd, and Tuesday a 4th. Once they hatch I'll try to get a quick shot each day when she's away.

Sad to say, Friday afternoon all 4 eggs were gone. Lots of Grackles in the yard....I wonder if they had a feast?

Kind of wondering if Momma could have moved them???

That will be a nice photo journal. I'll be watching for them. I have a mama robin sitting on a nest down the street that is well below eye level. I have to check on her progress every time I walk the dog past. But last night right at dusk there were two feral cats sitting a few yards away. I was afraid they were waiting for mama to leave, or waiting for dark to take mama on. I sicced the dog on them. Sorry cat lovers. smile (Sheepish grin.) She seemed to be surviving just fine this morning.

I was looking forward to posting more pictures....

Very sad to say the eggs are all gone.

Sarah....Just how far did you chase those cats!?

Actually, there are a lot of Grackles around so I wonder if they helped themselves?

    • Rand Paul has put together a plan, and there are others, as well.   But as long as there is the requirement put forth by Trump and the Democrats that everyone will have healthcare coverage, whether they can pay for it or not, it's probably DOA...     https://www.paul.senate.gov/news/press/dr-rand-paul-unveils-obamacare-replacement-act  
    •   The only way to prevent single payer is for the Republicans to miraculously pull some other "terrific" plan out of their bums that they haven't been able to come up with in the last 7 years.   Good luck.
    •   I noticed you failed to provide examples.  
    • You can never have to many frogs.
    • They can come up with a workable healthcare law.   The hard (impossible) part is coming up with a workable healthcare law with all winners and no losers, as that is the requirement.
    • KVD is a hammer on Toledo. He is the only one I have slotted in for sure. A lot of really good sticks struggle on Toledo. I imagine 30+ percent of people will pick Hackney, but he really doesn't have a stellar track record there. This will be an interesting one. IIRC, many of their past stops at TB have been later in the year, like second week of May. A lot will depend on when the fish there spawn. Could be a tough transition bite, or it could be a freakin' amazing postspawn smashfest.
    • I am no expert, but I am guessing that you will be advised to put some insulation under it, and if you don't have insulation under the slab now, that may be an issue. I would also think that it would be better to keep your foundation/slab one piece for all. But again, i am not an expert in the least! We do have infloor heating in our cabin slab and it is very nice, and the off-peak/dual-fuel electric pricing makes it nice and affordable heat. Very nice on the feet in winter, and keeps the gas bill very low.   If you don't have off-peak/dual-fuel pricing then the electric may get very very expensive to run, especially without proper insulation missing from part of it.   Good luck.
    •   Nailed It!!!  Way too much tinkering went on...some of that brought on by Fletch...Hansal, White/Schroeder, Stewart for a 4th line would be just fine too...they have to dial in these remaining games to have the consistency needed for the playoffs.
    • If you want to keep it simple, buy a bunch of black Booyah Pad Crashers. They're relatively inexpensive (compared to some frogs, anyway), pretty durable, and draw tons of strikes. You can mess with different colors for fun, but you can't really go wrong with black.

      Terminator's new(ish) frogs are also amazingly good, and cast and walk better than Booyahs IMO.
    • Time to put Zucker back up with Granny and Koivu.  Sometimes when he gets pushed down in the lineup he stops working as hard.  Put him back on #1 line and he will pick it up. Then Parise, Staal and Pommer.  Put Coyle, Nino and Haula together.   Was fun shifting the lines every game early on, but time to settle in.
