We have had multiple robin families raising little babies on the nests we left on three of our downspouts (from last summer). After the other two nests were recently vacated by the wee birds, I took them down as they were in high traffic areas. . .and, well, we were constantly being chastised by the mamas and the papas every time we came near their babies.
HOWEVER. . .this last nest, located in a spot we don't need to be around very often, will stay. . .even after these sweet ones fly away!
I thought there were three birdies in this nest, but it wasn't until last evening that I could clearly see all three of them!!
This is how I found them this morning. . .two little heads and one little bum! :)
I shared with you, in a May PINK SATURDAY post, how I'd filled six of our patio pots with red vincas (aka periwinkles). They are supposed to be red. . . .
but, as they grow, they take on a PINKISH red. . .and that's OK with us cuz they tolerate the Western exposure and that makes us all happy. . .especially THE STONE RABBIT as he's in charge of taking care of them! He says they are very "grower friendly"!
