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?

    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
