It was late May, when I first noticed the robin darting back and forth by the window to the holly tree. After watching more closely, I noticed a nest.
It was a bit high to reach easily and I just made note of it.
Some weeks have passed and I see again, that the robin is still hanging around,
now at the viburnum bush, just 20 feet from the first nest over the fence.
I peek through it's branches and discover, that indeed, there is another robin's nest.
I grab a ladder to get a better look, as it's only 5 feet off the ground this time.
I catch the mother straining her neck to see what I'm doing, as she digs around for worms in the mulch nearby.
I pull the branch towards me and
there, there is the baby.
Just one, flattened deep into the nest,
with just one tiny eye watching me.
I wait a long while for the mother to return,
and there she is, with a big wormy meal for the baby. She wrinkles up her head feathers,
not pleased to see me still watching.
I retreat, satisfied with some good shots to share.
