This morning as I walked out the front door to get the morning paper, I startled a Robin nearby. Nothing new about that, we have tons of Robins here. But as the bird flew away I noticed a bird’s nest in our hibiscus bush. Curious, I walked up to it there in the bottom of the nest lay three blue Robin’s eggs. I had disturbed Mom as she was keeping the eggs warm.
I couldn’t help myself, even though I know to stay away so that the parents don’t abandon the nest, I grabbed my camera and quickly took some photos of the nest and Mom sitting there. Until the eggs hatch the front door will be off limits. Good thing we have three others to choose from.
