All the Little Robins Go Tweet, Tweet, Tweet

In addition to the goose eggs I have to worry about, I now have three robin eggs to watch! Ted came across this nest today while cutting the grass. He startled the mama bird, but later on, I saw her back on the nest.

The bad news is the location of the nest. It is not very high up in the tree which is located in the front yard. I've moved the cat food bowl from the front porch to Hotel S in the backyard in hopes of keeping the neighbors' cats from hanging around and finding this nest.

I'll be keeping any eye on it, and hoping that the birdies hatch and survive!

Wow!! I don't think I've ever actually seen a robins egg before--what a pretty color.
Hope they make it.
