Look what happened while I was out of town!

Before we left on our trip to Arkansas we noticed that a new resident
had taken up on our front porch. Notice the top of the wreath.


Mama Robin (or so we suspected) was working so hard building the prettiest nest!


She had diligently mudded in her nest to secure it to the wall,
then she added more soft grass for her soon-coming eggs.

Today when we got home this is what we found:

Aren't they precious?!


For more show & tell, head over to Kellie's at There Is No Place Like Home.

Oh.my.goodness. How lucky are you! What a beautiful nest that bird has built. I on the other hand have a sweet dove couple who needed help with their nest. (I blogged about it here: http://cheryl-comfort.blogspot.com/2009/04/nesting.html ) Dove's are really bad nest builders lol...I think thats why they only have up to 2 eggs, because their nests are AWFUL lol...anywho, your very blessed. I look forward to seeing your newly hatched baby birds when they make their entrance into this world!

It's perfect! Did you move it? It looks like it isn't on top of the wreath anymore. Is mama still sitting on the eggs? So sweet!

How cute. We had baby birds a few years back. Just expect a lot of poop on your porch! But worth it.

That is amazing how it is so a part of the wreath. How neat that you can watch the progress.

How precious. There is just something about bird nests and eggs that is so special and sweet.

Mom just planted flowers in a metal planter that hangs on her porch a few weeks ago. A bird has already built a nest! It is not the usual nest, either. It is sideways, like the bird was trying to make it blend in with the potting soil and flowers ;)

No, I haven't moved it, but we haven't seen the mama in a while. I hope we're just missing each other, but I'm a little worried about her.
