Nesting Robins...


Were expecting, baby Robins that is. They are nesting right beside my garage, this view is through the window and provides me with some great viewing. With any luck for me and them they will hatch some young and I will get to watch and photograph them growing. I added the luck part because as I was watching them this past Saturday a crow came swooping in for the attack and chased away the Robin. When the coast was clear they quickly got back on the nest.

I upload and do scheduled post all the time, since I did this post there has been a change in the robins situation. The day after I took these I noticed two young robins in the nest with one of the adults feeding them. At the time I did not want to get close so I did not get any photos, later that night I noticed that the robins were not coming back to set on the nest. After checking it yesterday I found it to be empty, I guess nature took its course and the young robins lost.

I am a day late again this week with Bird Photography Weekly, I will catch on one of these days.

...I'm sorry to hear the babies fell prey to something in the night. --Your study of the nesting mama is wonderful. I haven't seen such beautiful close-ups of a mama Robin on a nest in a long time (if ever).

I have enjoyed catching up on your blog. Your bird photography is wonderful and I for one will never get tired of seeing birds. Sad about the baby Robins.
