spring birds


A pair of robins decided to build their nest underneath our deck this year and we were able to watch them hard at work building the nest for several weeks, and then watch the baby birds grow from featherless sleepy things into hopping and flying robins. What a fun thing to be able to watch with the kids.

Here is a baby robin as seen from above through the deck boards:


They were quite hungry a few days later and for about two weeks, we got to watch both the parents bringing the baby birds food.


Then they started vacating the nest one at a time. Here is a look when there were just two left.


One about to hop out of the nest:


It was so cute watching them hop around and learn how to fly. The first flight of this bird was up on top of our play house:

The kids really enjoyed checking in on them daily. We then got a chance to look at the nest after all of the birds left.
