Robin Babies

We have two babies born! I know its difficult to see them but if you enlarge the picture you can see alittle of the babies. I knew it would be this week.
Mama Robin was sitting on the swing watching me. My guess is that the other two babies will be born in the next day or so. I hope they make it. Its been alot of fun watching her and Daddy. Right now they are both around and really watching us. The cottage baldy is building isnt to far from the next and I think they are getting used to us alittle by now.

I want to get pictures of the cottage but I'm trying to hold off onto he at least has the door done and the trim painted. Hopefully we will have electricity in the next day or two also so I can show you how neat the fireplace looks. Shellmo, you asked if its electric, yes it is. It also gives off heat.

I'm still out searching for neat things to hang from the rafters, I want all kinds of neat inspirational things hanging to stimulate the mind. Baldyman thinks he will have the door done tonight so hopefully tonight I can vacumn it out and get a few pictures. Its really looking cozy.

Oh congratulations!!! You will feel so proud when they are getting ready to leave the nest.
All the birds around here have built nests behind things so we can't see. We have a nest in the brick fireplace in the patio but can't see it. Just watch mama bird taking food to it.

How cool, Dawnie! Have fun in the Dells, it was a zoo last week-end. Some time when you go we should meet up. We're only an hour from there. Cindy

Yea - you have Robin babies! I'll know this weekend whether mine has hatched at the cabin yet or not.
I love our electric fireplace - it gives off heat like yours too.
Dying to see how your cottage looks! I know it's going to be great!!

I still can't get over the fact that she built her nest right outside your window, what a great view you're going to have of this birdie family. Can't wait to see the cottage - what a fun place to relax and unwind. Kathy
