Happy Home

We have a sweet new family that has moved into our house. 
This nice little nest home is in the corner of our front porch.  

I first noticed this when checking something on the porch.  I was alarmed when a bird flew right over my head. So, I look up and there is the nest.


I was worried that the robin would be too afraid to return to the nest, but she came back after just a few minutes.

She is a very good Robin mother. Very consistent about sitting on her nest.  Even when we go in and out the front door, she remains at her post.

She will only leave if you get really close.  But we can check on her from inside the house by just looking out a window right by the nest.

It is going to be fun to watch the progress.  Looking forward to new Robin babies.....

Enjoy your day♥♥

How fun! Last year a robin flew in our garage and made a nest on top of a ladder hanging on the garage wall. I moved it, and the next day she came back and built another! So, needless to say I ended up keeping out garage door open 24/7 until the babies left the nest!

What a kind woman you are to let her remain in your porch in spite of the mess it will be! You are a dear. Please take pics of the new babes!
