Robin’s Nest 2016

It’s been a cold April since I came back from Jamaica.

May hasn’t been any warmer yet, and we still have the heat on.

After my Mom’s birthday I noticed that some robins had built on low branches of a pine tree overhanging our yard.

I thought we had waited too long to put a hanging plant on the back porch for the robins to build in.

It’s been cold, so we waited until May 1 to put out the flowers.

Yes, I admit the hanging plant on the back porch was to attract the robins!  : )

It only took a few days until we started to notice activity!!

Nest in progress!

Then they added more grass to lay their eggs!

Then on Mother’s Day weekend there was one egg!!!  Woooo hoooooooo!  Momma Robin hung out all day Saturday and she spent the night too with her egg.  It’s a bit chilly so I was happy to see that she stayed!
