One image and a short story (well short for me) for today. I’ve been having an ongoing feud with a mother Robin the last several days. She first attempted to build a nest outside my office window. I kept moving the grass, straw, and mud and she finally gave up.
Then I found a bunch of straw, grass, and mud on the back patio as she was trying to build a nest on a step-ladder Jeanne had left out. I brushed away that mess and then it was several days before I went back to the patio and she had a fully constructed nest.
I hated to tear it down but what mess that was going to be. I peaked inside and there was one egg. Well, shoot! Now I can’t touch it. Now there are 4 eggs in the nest and she is mostly on the nest 24 hours a day.
Last night we had burgers for dinner and she was pretty upset with me because I kept coming out to take care of the burgers. So today I snuck around the corner of the house to grab this image. Even though it looks like I am really close, I used a 600mm lens so she wasn’t stressed out.
It’s going to be a mess for awhile, especially when they hatch and there all the chirping and feeding going on. Probably more to come. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
