Robins Nest!

Jeff and I feed the birds in our backyard (a lot).  We normally (when we are not battling a RACCOON BASTARD) have the following options for our birdies to enjoy:

1. Squirrel proof tube feeder with a classic mix of sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, millet, peanuts

2. Blue perch-style feeder, also squirrel proof, with a variety of nuts and dried fruits

3. Hummingbird feeder with lots of nectar OR a thistle feeder (depending on the season) 

4. Two small tray feeders with pepper coated, shelled sunflower seeds

5. A birdbath

All of this is on our backyard deck, so all day long the birdies sing in the trees and come down to have a bite to eat.

Well, the other day we were sitting in the office,   which looks into the front porch and yard - and saw this:

Ok, ok - I konw it's probably impossible to see but we have ROBINS that built their baby bird nest in our FRONT TREE!!!

Yes, the front tree - where we have no feed, no water, nothing...but a window to look out of and watch the mama feed them.  

We actually heard chirp-chirp-chirp before we saw them.  Jeff finally spotted what all the ruckus was about.  We have SO been enjoying watching the little guys eat and grow up!
