Little Eggs of Joy

mama robin on nestI’ve been watching her (and maybe him) building their nest for some time now….on the wooden arbor over my back porch….busily bringing twigs and stuff and patting them all down, under the coverage of wisteria that grows overhead….and making one heck of a nice nest.   Can you see her there? Her tail is sticking out to the right of the nest and her head is peaking over to the left.

I didn’t dare get any closer for fear of frightening her off.  I hope Momma Robin isn’t already having buyer’s remorse over her choice of nesting spots. I mean, we do come and go out this door several times a day, and tonight there will be some people over, who will no doubt be outside and laughing  and talking, though I’ve tried to gently get here used to people sounds and she doesn’t seem much perturbed.

Muffy on house arrest...And Muffy the calico cat is also on restriction…house arrest she calls it…I can’t bear the thought of her catching and killing the Mommy or Daddy Robin..especially not with little ones on the way. And she would try…oh my yes. Baby Girl!Baby Girl, who is an inside kitty, sits on her perch by the back door, and watches the Robins come and go from the nest, making her little cat sounds, as if she can just imagine how delightful it would be to get her teeth around one of them. Dream on, Baby.

But it is something fun to watch…I can’t wait until the eggs hatch and there are little cheep-cheep sounds….so sweet. Little bundles of…no make that little eggs of joy.

  1. We had a robin nest in our peach tree. The day after we had that heavy rain and high wind last week, we found the nest hanging on a brach with four blue egss and no momma robin. My husband secured the nest again but she never came back. It was sad. We also were hoping for baby robins. Good luck with your nest. Nature is wonderful. Ejoy your blogs. Loretta
