April 26, 2008 - We found a Robin's nest!!

We were re-landscaping our front yard when Jon spotted the startings of a bird nest in the Holly bush in our front yard. We looked around a bit and sure enough, there was a female Robin with grass in her beak waiting for us to get out of her way! About 5 feet away from her was a angry looking male Robin definitely guarding his mate. Unfortunately for them we had to get our yardwork done, fortunately for us, they didn't abandon the site after their construction was put on hold for a few hours.

The nest is directly under our living room window! You can look directly inside of it, so it will be perfect for viewing the babies. We are all really excited about watching a new Robin family grow this Spring!
