Baby robins are hatching

The robins are hatching! The nest is at my front door.

Two of the robin eggs have hatched! I gather this picture was brought to us after some careful gymnastics to remain low to the ground, so the mom bird would not dive bomb the photographing intruder, while holding the iphone up high to capture the photo of the babies. They are no more than an hour or two old in the picture.

They are just little fluffballs - so cute.  More tomorrow if my photo correspondent can catch the mom off the nest, she does not leave for long. If you have missed this story, read back a post or two - the eggs took about 11 days to hatch.

Best,

Leanne

  11. Maybe that is why I haven't seen my fat red robin of late. I was worried that a cat got it. They are so cute.

  14. Is it odd that my first thought was 'how nicely that pink fluff goes with those blue eggs'?!
