Robin’s nest and pretty blue egg

I discovered this robin’s nest while trimming the bush by our front door.  I had already cut away some of the protective branches, but I stopped once I saw it.  I hope I haven’t scared away the mama bird.  We’ve been seeing a robin hanging out in our back yard lately.

Also, here is our other big plant.  It is driving me crazy that I can’t find the “before” picture from when I first moved here.  This plant was sad and droopy, but I’ve trimmed it back each fall and it looks much better now.  Thanks for the plant advice, Dad.

    One time we had a robin nest in a gutter where we could watch it from inside. It took a few days for them to build the nest, then 2 weeks later the birds were getting bigger and one by one flew off. It’s all very quick. They were fun to watch.

    […] nest in our front yard.  It takes 12 to 14 days for the eggs to hatch.  I wrote about discovering the little blue egg on July 21.  That’s over 20 days ago.  Perhaps the egg has been there for even longer.  […]
