Lesson 1388 – Blue eggs countdown – they’re here

A lot has happened in our neck of the woods. Because our Robin has nested so close to our front door and because (I hope anyway) I continue to leave blueberries out for her each morning, she has tolerated me taking quick snapshots of her little family. Just take a look at what I am so lucky to be able to see.
Lots of pipping on that top right egg.


Oh, look, here she is giving her siblings some emotional support.


Pop! another one!


And baby makes three.


But wait, we’re not done, here comes the last little guy.


And this is why the mama bird will not be allowed to sit still for the next few weeks.

  1. That last picture (and no rest caption) are so true. Great pictures…and keep those blueberries ready.

    That is so wonderful to be able to see the progress. Thanks for sharing with us that are not so fortunate to have the same experience. Your post help me to realize my own experiences.

    Fantastic pictures, Wendy! I have a Robin’s nest sitting on top of my chicken run (fencing over the top), where I have some metal barn sheeting angled so the run stays dry. She picked a great place, as no one can reach her and she is used to me feeding the chickens every day and caring for them. She watches me go about my chores from the comfort of her nest!

  4. I do believe I would be digging up worms to leave for the poor, beleaguered mother.
