Porch Work and Companions

Today I had a few meetings and mostly email responses for work so I took advantage of the fact that I didn’t need two computer monitors and worked from the porch.

A few weeks ago, a robin was busily making a nest in a bush right outside my porch window. Today, to my delight, I realized that a family was in it.

See the cute little bird? Would you guess it was sharing a nest with littles?

As I worked, I saw the parent flying back and forth feeding the little ones. My camera is not fantastic, but if you try really hard, you can see my treat.

What’s really neat is that our weather is not fantastic today. It’s raining and thundering and the wind is tossing that bush about a bit, but they are all snuggled in. Happy as not larks. Just happy as a robin singin’ its song 🙂

Makes me happy, too.

    1. Yesterday the parents were away, and the babies sat in the next with their heads up and beaks open. It looked like there were little orange lilies in the nest. Amazing.
