Vigilant Mrs Robin watching her babies and our back door.
So you can see how close the nest is to the deck. The metal pipe is the frame for the canvas awning.. She is sitting of the frame in the top picture.
Two weeks ago before the babies hatched two magpies came to near to the nest. She screamed and about three other robins came swooping in and attached the magpies. We do not have magpies in our back yard any more.
Three babies waiting for food. In a week or two they will be nosy. For now I just hear small peeps.
She does not like me to take her picture are be near to her babies. One baby is straining out from beneath her with its mouth open. Mrs Robin has a worm in her beak and baby wants some. She is distracted by my camera. So I went back in the house and closed the door.
It is hard to see her but Mrs Robin is sitting on the fence at the back of our yard. She is watching out siding glass door and the movement in the house.
This has been really fun watching her build the nest, then waiting for the eggs to hatch, now watching her care for the babies.
Until next time,
