In other news, several weeks ago my downstairs neighbor caught sight of two mated robins building a nest on her fire escape. It's a perfectly round little nest, but such an unusual and rather exposed place for it! Every morning I stick my head out of my living room window to check up on her. Yesterday, she was off the nest for a few minutes looking for food and I caught a few pics the three, perfect robin-blue birdy eggs. Look!
This morning it's raining here in New York, so she had her wings spread out to cover the entirety of the nest. *happy sigh* Ain't nature grand? I'm looking forward to when the eggs hatch. If any of you are interested, I'll post more pics as things evolve here for my avian mommy.
