Not sure why these little guys are showing up so early when it’s still so cold, but here they be! Pretty chubby too. A friend took these a couple of days ago and got some really good shots…she’s a pro! I love robins mainly because they have such pretty eggs. They seem to favor one of my burr oak trees for their nest-building. I’m not sure if burr oaks are sturdier thus the nests or it could be that the tree is protected from our high spring winds better than most.
Some robins nest around the farm each year so I wait till the babies hatch and gather up the egg shell pieces. Last year, I found an egg that was almost completely intact…don’t now how the little guy managed to get out with such a small hole! I think a room painted that gorgeous shade of blue would be fantastic. Of course, everyone in my family would say “Another BLUE ROOM?!!!”
But blue is like chocolate, diamonds, books and grandbabies…there’s no such thing as too many or too much. Just sayin’.
