Robin Redbreast

It always makes my heart soar to see the first robin in spring.  I know that winter, at least the hard part of it, is done.

This year I saw my first robin on March 31st.  My husband actually saw it first and called me to come to see her.    She was perched in my neighbors tree.


This particular lady decided to move into my neighborhood.  She is now my closest neighbor.

She started building a nest on our downspout.   For the last few years, a robin mama has built a nest in this same spot.   I’m not sure if it is the same robin or not.

This is how it started four days ago.


The nest sits a couple feet from our back door and it looks like it is finished today.    I’m not sure if there are any eggs in it.  I’ll wait and watch for baby robins to peek their heads out of the nest.
