Can you see her sitting in the nest? This is our mother robin that has come for the past 3 years to this nest in our front apple tree. The first year we were here the wind blew down the nest in the Autumn and the next Spring they came and rebuilt. We have been watching and waiting for a few weeks...wondering when they would return.
I highlighted her here. I was standing on the rail to try to get close enough to get the picture but not too close. The littles are learning this little song:
We will find a little nest
In the branches of a tree
Let us count the eggs inside
There are one, two, three
Mother bird sits on the nest
To hatch the eggs all three.
Father bird flies round and round
To guard his family.
We don't know how many babies there will be this year. Last year there was only one but the year before there were three.
This is one of our Spring nature treasures!
