Robin Nesting

If you look real close at the bedroom curtain and you can enlarge by clicking on the picture,,you will see the outline of the Robins beak while she's sitting in the nest. I LOVE this picture. I have been checking on and off when I'm home to see if the Robin is ever in the nest. This is the first I've seen of her. When I left for work this morning-I did see 1 egg in the nest. When I came home, there were 2!
I was experimenting alittle with my camera=sorry this is a blurry shot, but you can see the eggs.
Here's another shot--clearer. Arent they beautiful? I feel so blessed to have this going on right in my bedroom window. I'm going to tie back my curtains tonight so I dont disturb her when she's resting. I sure hope this goes well all the way thru and we get to see the babies and watch them grow. I've never been priviledged to have this experience so close at hand.

15 Thanks for your comments!:

OH MY GOODNESS! This is awesome! And I have to admit - but don't tell anyone - I didn't know that Robin's eggs are blue! I thought - well I thought that was an old wives tale!
This is so cool, keep us posted!

I am so excited for you! Love looking at those blue eggs! By the way - I now have a Robin nesting in the eaves of our log cabin. I'll post the pic later this week. We'll have to see whose babies hatch first! :-)

I think thats neat that you can be so close up and the birds don't know you are watching. Hope the eggs hatch out.

That is what people mean when they say "Robin's egg blue"! It is now a firm, pretty picture for me in my mind. I can't wait to see the babies.

how awesome is that!!! I wish we had a tree that was large enough for this to happen outside my window!
I was just on my way over here when you left me a comment! thanks for all the sweet words...sadly the seeds did not perform the way they should have or have in previous years and I am afraid I will come up short this year!
