Let me show you our nursery.
We have two Robin nests within 40 feet of each other.
This one is visible from the kitchen table,
the other one is above the light fixture on the house.
As soon as we have newborns I will show those pictures.
This picture was taken a few days ago. Today,while shivering in the cold
the words from a winter song come to mind today.
'The weather outside is frightful.'
Well O.K. it's not storming,but it is very cold.This morning the bird baths were frozen solid.
although the weather is not great,the birds made up for it.
While sitting on the back steps I was treated to the following birds.
The first one is a Rufus-sided Towhee.Isn't he a beauty?
Next we have a Rose-breasted Grosbeak,
another colorful bird.
I know these two are good 'R' birds and I will use them again.
Trust me,I have lots more pictures of these two.
He is at the tray with raisins put there for the Robins.
Seems he enjoys the water,sweetened by the fruit.
We also had a Ruby-throated Hummingbird show up,but,
unfortunately no pictures. The song of a Robin is an angels voice in the garden.
