Baby Robins have arrived!

eggsIt is a funny feeling knowing that a mother Robin has entrusted you with her unhatched eggs! She has built a nest right up against my back door, and proceeds to lay her eggs, one at a time, up to four. Hatching takes up to a day…per egg. Once born, they need a lot of food. It’s a full time job for the parents to protect the nest , find food, and feed the babies.

I felt so responsible as they hunted at night for worms and food!
