Remember several posts back we had a Momma Robin getting her nest ready then laid her precious eggs in it? Well they hatched last week. We have been watching them from the window as not to scare momma into thinking we are trying to harm her babes. It appears that Momma & Poppa both are tending to their babies needs by getting grub many times throughout the day. Momma & Poppa have also been seen both sitting upon the nest at the same time. I didn't realize that daddy Robin's shared responsibilities. It has been fun to watch.
We check on them periodically and even worry about them. It has been pretty crazy around here as far as the weather goes..One day it's sunny, the next it's raining. Then two huge storms came through with wind, thunder, lighting and hail. All the while these loving parents sat on their nest getting hit by the wind, rain and chill. I am so proud of them for their diligence. God really shows His love for even His smallest creations. It's been such a treat to witness right outside our window, I can't get the best of pictures, but glad I captured what I did!
Soon their babies will leave the nest and hopefully Momma & Poppa will stick around and build again here. I think Robin's usually have about three or four nest fulls throughout the season. They picked a perfect spot to set up for sure, it has kept them all pretty safe under the eaves of the porch.
