If You Build it They will Come – American Robins

Mrs. Robin decided the platform was perfect.

Four blue eggs hatched. Meet the four baby robins.

    • Two years ago the robins raised two chicks in a similar size nest. This year it was four chicks. I can’t imagine what it would have been like with more little birds, nor how the parents would have managed to feed them all!

    • I would think the basic task of building a nest and laying eggs, etc is similar with all birds – so in watching robins I’m learning a lot about the bird world in general!

  1. Which just goes to show you don’t have to hug trees or picket power companies to love nature and be a hands-on environmentalist– well done, C.G., and thanks for the cool photo essay, Margy!!


    • The Car Guy took the nest down when the birds were gone, sterilized the box and cleaned up the area. We’re all ready for next year’s brood!
