Wednesday Wings - Front Yard Robin Nest
Close to the front of the house sits Mom Robin on a nest built precariously on a branch about six feet off the ground.
This picture was taken from the road side. The nest is hidden on the house side.
The nest is easily predator accessible so I don't know how much luck she's going to have with it. Also the branch is not sturdy. I was able to pull it down far enough to get a picture of the eggs.
It's by the main door and Mom Robin is nervous about all the activity.
If it gets to the stage where there are hatchlings that look ready to leap out, I'll inconvenience myself for a few days to avoid the area. Sounds like a good excuse to procrastinate mowing the lawn.
