Mrs. Robin Has Done a Fine Job !

Mother Robin's eggs have hatched ....

Not the best picture I'm afraid, but I wanted to get as close as I dared, and show the new arrivals......
All three eggs have hatched, one of the babies, was hiding beneath the other two.
I've named them Larry, Daryl, and Daryl :)

Mother robin
On the nest.
Warm blue eggs
Beneath your chest.

Baby robins
Hatch, hatch, hatch.
Call for food
Dad goes to catch.

Father robin
Brings food back.
Open beaks
Stretch for their snack.

That's a pretty good nest, isn't it. Hope they all do well. I liked your picture.
Blessings, Star

New birth is always exciting - is the nest in your yard?

Carol Murdock said...

Aren't they so sweet? We have some nest builders on the front porch. they come every year and hatch two batches but I forgot what they are.

Thank you Star, she seems to be a dedicated mum, and when they grow larger, I'll snap another picture .

Jeannette, there is a link at the bottom of the post, which shows the previous story of the eggs, and Mrs. Robin.
It leads up to the babies being born.

Carol, there are Bluebird nests, Robin nests, and Wren nests, all full of babies, but can't climb high enough to take pictures of the others.
I wonder what kind you have ?

Love watching birds nesting and feel lucky if I get a chance to watch the little ones take first flight!

What a great photo.

We have birds nesting but I think mainly blackbirds. They're too deep in the conifers to see them.

Jo, I was just going to ask if they had hatched yet? I guess you know they'll be leaving in a couple of weeks. Take lots of pics so you can see how they grow so fast.
