I have spent most of today watching 2 robins build a nest. I have watched them tear up parts of my beautifully manicured lawn. I have watched them work together, chase each other and fight. They are exhausting to watch. I had no idea how much planning and work was involved in building the all important nest. They have not stopped for a moment and getting pictures was nearly impossible. I share this with all of you for the beauty of the story, not the photo's.
Can you see that big clump of muddy grass in her beak???
That's what they were interested in.......
here's another terrible shot, but you can see the clump of muddy grass.....
this was the view all day, nose down, gathering wet grass!!!!!
this is the best shot I could get of the nest,
it's huge, right in the center of the picture.
She seemed somewhat concerened when I came out to get a picture of the nest!!!!!
So I can only assume that soon we will have this........
but everything will be way out of sight this year!!!!!!
