    I have a basket hanging outside my back door where I keep extra sunglasses, skin so soft for bugs, etc. A momma bird decided to build her nest in the basket. There were 4 little pink eggs in the nest and today I noticed the eggs have hatched.

    cute, I got to watch 3 baby robins grow up as the nest was on the window sill in craft room, one day I was talking to them, closed the window and 2 of them flew away for the 1st time the other one stayed in nest and was scared, and maybe 5 hours later went and talked to it and it flew away

    I sure miss them now

    How fun! I really like to watch the Robins, but I have to admit that when the cat gets the sparrows I really don't mind. Shame on me, I know, but there are so many of them and they poo all over my car.

    they are very interesting to watch. My sister told me about some baby eagles that were being streamed live from their nest. We started watching them backin April and got so addicted to watching them every nite.

    They just flew from their nest last week.

    It was definitely an awesome experience...I wouldn't have never imagined becoming so attached to watching those little eaglets.

    The nest looks like my Robin's nest, but that probably doesn't mean anything...

    Those silly birds will build their nests anywhere. We had a nest on top of your light outside the door! But, before that they tried to build it on the mail box which is slanted and opened pretty much every day!!

    And the pine trees are full of them, along with the owls. Really intelligent...
