Last year the robins nested in the front oak tree. This year they chose what they must have considered a better location.........the rafter under the back deck!! They have worked for weeks making the home "just right".......and now we have the sound of the hungry hatchlings!!! I haven't been able to snatch a picture of the new life just yet, but maybe soon!! Enjoy!! Happy Father's Day to all the dads, too!!

I can't wait to see the picture of the babies!

We had a robin that would fly into our window a few years ago and our son named it "Glass Rob". It never hurt it, but I worried about it! And then we had one that built a nest in my hanging flower basket a few years ago too and we did get to watch the babies grow! It was so fun!

We store away our extension ladder by hanging it on the side of the garden shed...and every spring a mama robin decides to build a nest on the ladder. It's an excellent spot as it is sheltered by the eave of the shed...however my husband has to postpone using the ladder until the babies have flown the nest. After a long northern winter the nesting birds are a soothing sight.
Trudy...your pictures of your Colorado skies are magnificent. I almost feel as if I'm there!!

Hi, Trudy! Thanks for stopping by my blog! You're registered for the Giftaway!
Don't you love watching the baby birds develop? I run around our property each summer morning, checking on all the nests! They probably all think I'm some harmless eccentric, because they keep coming back!

Me again, back for another comment! Actually, it's a question: You're taking some fabulous shots of Nature!!! What kind of camera are you using?

Lovely shots of this pretty bird. How nice to have a nest in your rafters. I spend most of my time rescuing fledglings from our two maraunding

I just found your blog today for the first time and have spent the last hour mesmerized by the beautiful photography, dolls, writing and pears! Loved every minute of it too.
Great work, all around.
