    I checked this morning on the robins on our back deck ---- we have babies! Just 2 that I can tell. I had only seen 2 eggs when I took pics earlier.
    Will keep capturing pics as they grow.

    These are taken from the dinning room door. I stay inside and zoom in.

    You are a good Godmother to stay inside and leave your porch to the birds.

    We normally use the deck a lot for grilling and sitting just relaxing and enjoying our view. We have stayed away as much as possible to give her time and space.

    How long did it take before they hatched? We have a nest with four eggs in it right now and we noticed it two weeks ago.

    I have a pair of Chickadees in my back yard tree, there are a couple babies in the birdhouse. Fun to watch mom and dad bringing in the food. Can/t wait to see the babies.

    Living in the country, I have lots of birdhouses and other fixtures and they are all full of eggs and babies. My cats even leave them alone. They know they get the water hose if they don't. I noticed out by the shop, there is a nest with two dove babies. That was a first. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I did see the little fuzzy heads.
