Baby Robins


The robins are back in the nest that has been on top of our gazebo door for a few years. My husband keeps saying he is going to move it (due to the bird poop on the door into our gazebo) but I won't let him. I am amazed that they keep using the same nest. The mommy robin screamed at me while I was taking this shot.....pretty intensely I might add!

  3. Do you remember I went through the whole robin family process last summer? It was an intense time for me as I was worried about hawks but none showed up the whole time the babies were in the nest and after they left. I think the mommas are back from that group as they are investigating the same place like your's have done.

    You did get a beautiful photograph of them. And wait until it gets a little warmer and they get a little sleepy and you will be able to use your new Rebel to get some fantastic sleepy shots. LOL

    I got a new Rebel, the XSi which I like a lot too.

  7. What a wonderful shot.
    These little guys are all mouth at this age aren't they LOL.
    Nestlings are so vulnerable at this stage - it must drive poor momma nearly crazy. Well-captured Neva.

  10. We have a robin nest this year also. It is on our window to the bathroom. I will have to post pics soon. There are three eggs and we are waiting for them to hatch.

  12. Wow, this is a very interesting shot. Looks like the bird is forming out of some sort of smoke.

  14. That's a wonderful shot! My parents have a robin and a blackbird nesting in their garden, and the birds give as good as they can whenever they try to go out into the garden!

    Thanks for your comment on Glasgow DP - much appreciated!

  15. hey are so ugly that they are beautiful. We had a pair of leser striped swallows that nested outside our kitchen for many years. They would always arrive on the second saturday in September and immediately start rebuilding their nest, even though it often did not need rebuilding. They made a mess, but because they were so delightful we accepted it.
