UNTIL ...Tim found this robin's nest in one of our bushes as he was hiding eggs on Easter. I can't say what was more striking - the intricacy of the nest, the color of the four perfect eggs, or the sight of the protective momma bird. Truly lovely.
P.S. On April 23, we checked the nest to find four hungry baby birds waiting for their momma to return. We watched and just a few minutes later, momma bird came back to the nest with an afternoon snack for her little ones. Amazing!
