Robin's nest.

By Karuma1970
Jim next door always leaves the door of his greenhouse open a bit. Well now he's paying for it: Squatters' rights. A robin laid her eggs a couple of weeks ago and the chicks are growing quickly. They do allow Jim and Deirdre to use the greenhouse from time to time just so long as they donít make too much of a nuisance of themselves.

That's beautiful Mike! We have a pair nesting in the ivy but the Magpies keep patrolling...

Looks like they may be fledging soon although it may be more difficult from that pot than a tree branch higher up. A super find and capture.

A wonderful story told in your photos, Mike. Reminds me of one....we are sailors....mostly chartering on the Chesapeake Bay. One trip we went down in the Spring....and we go bumped to another (larger) boat. It seemed that family of swallows had nested inside the boom...and until the chicks flew, they were keeping that boat in the slip.
