Baby mamma

July 3, 2010

This is the second robin nest of the season this year, and we are keeping a close eye on things. After the bird homicide committed on our back deck on Thursday morning (Steve caught the falcon or hawk or whatever bird of prey red-handed/beeked), we are very happy that mamma robin has found a safe haven for her nest full of eggs (and now one baby bird) under our deck. While we haven’t had much rain the last few days, we’ve even put a plastic cover on top so that when it does, her nest and babies won’t get too soggy.

Baby mamma robin isn’t very skittish, and she’s allowed me to take quite a number of pictures of her in her nest. She is a proud mamma. I’ve also been able to get a few pictures inside the nest with the iPhone (there’s not enough clearance for a bigger camera). Here are a few pics that I’ve taken; I’ll continue to add more as the two other eggs hatch. Very exciting times!!

UPDATE! Baby #2 has arrived!

UPDATE! Baby #3 has hatched!
