The Babies

Robins built a nest right outside our living room window. They hatched and raised babies, and we had a front row seat! Unfortunately they were on the other side of double glass panes. I did my best to edit the pictures so they would show up better. So here is their journey!







I heard the sweet voice of a robin,
      High up in the maple tree,
      Joyously, singing his happy song
      To his feathered mate, in glee!...
If we could be like this tiny bird,
      Just living from day to day,
      Holding no bitterness in our hearts
      For those we meet on our way...

These are wonderful. How awesome to have a front row seat to watch them. The robins used to build a nest in a bush right next to my front door. One year a cat found it and they haven't built there since. It was always so fun to watch the progress of the nest

You did a great job capturing the action in the nest. I hope you can see them when they begin trying to fly.

I love these, how great that they were just in your view. I have one too, but it is not right in front of my window. House finches live there. You did a great job capturing the babies, love the last one picture where they all seem to be taking a nap.

Terrific photos Ginny.
You certainly had a great front row seat.
I love their open beaks begging to be fed.

How wonderful to be able to view from your living room! Have you held your camera right up against the window? That helps....and that hint was given to me by Sandra.
