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?

    • Just kidding, love the nills.   9 ah on the kdrill and rick will buy 2.  he will just drill all day and maybe we can finally catch a bigger fish than he does... LOL

    • Most certainly. Chili ain't chili with out beans!
    • Dem look good!!!
    • Kidneys and black X2,, This isn't a down south chili cook off, we need substance in our chili up here lol. 
    •   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    •   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
