As the birds were calling an end to the day, my daughter and I were meandering through the yard enjoying the longer daylight hours to be outside. Her sharp eyes spotted this beneath one of our hemlocks:
Today I went to see if I could get a peek into the nest. But there was no way to get to the nest through the tangle of branches, so my husband brought a ladder for me to climb for a look from the outside of the tree. Of course, being the lover of heights that I am, I shook so hard the ladder was shaking and my husband claimed there was no way I could get a picture. HA! That’s what the ‘sport’ mode is for! Unfortunately, mama bird had the nest well covered to keep it safe. Can you see the edges?
Baby Robin’s! Yep, it’s officially spring now!
