mishmash monday

I'm really, really, really, really excited about this!
 We're trying to avoid using our side door, so Mrs. Robin can incubate in peace.  She spends most of her day there.  Fingers crossed that all goes well, and one morning we will wake up to some crying babies!

Oreo is doing his part too.  He keeps an eye out for any potential intruders.
Can you see her?

Looks like you'll be needing to install another bird feeder and buy another bag of seeds soon. Hope all goes well with the Robin Family.

Hopefully there will be some chirpy chirpy cheep cheep sone. We put up eight nest boxes this year and were so happy to see a pair of bluebirds checking one out.

Very cool. I had a robin nest under my deck one year. You'll have to watch when the babies start flying. They tend to flutter to the ground and some doggies get curious.

Good job protecting the nest.

We have some birds that nest yearly in the trees on the side of our house. Bailey and Katy do a good job of keeping the squirrels out.

OMG - their was a robin here who thought our porch light would be the perfect nesting spot. She tried and tried to make it work in the back yard and then in the front yard. She didn't succeed. But look at that - your robin did!!

All the trees in your backyard and Mother robin picked a spot as close to the warmth of your family as possible. I hope the babies have a close enough ledge to fly to during their first flying lessons. Precious. Aloha.
