Robin’s newest beside our front door
by: Anonymous

Robin’s nest beside our front door. Just three days ago I noticed a nest had been built in my wreath. And each day she has laid one egg. The problem is this store is used 25 times a day and every time we walk out that door she flutters and flies away.

I’m afraid this will not give time to sit on the eggs to hatch them. Also every time you open the front door it’s almost a flogging as she flies off.

If I move the wreath a few feet away from the door will this be acceptable?

Front door light robin nest
by: Kerri

We've just discovered 2 Robbins are making a nest on our front porch light, as I am thrilled my husband is concerned.

Will all the activity at our front door discourage them and will they eventually leave their eggs? Will they swoop at us when the babies arrive? And where does the poop fall?

I'm thrilled and feel so grateful they chose us but what's concerning to me is when the babies are born what if they fall out of the nest and on to our front step which is concrete.

We have a welcome mat but its still worrisome to me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Robins Next in Wreath on Front Door
by: dawnmclean@rogers.com

I too have a robins nest embedded atop the wreath at my front door. I will leave it alone but do have concerns about how it is all going to pan out as this door is used daily. Not too much but we will have visitors tomorrow.

Wreath Nest in CT
by: Susan

Two weeks ago I noticed a Bird's Nest in door wreath, so carefully placed it looked like it came with it. I did touch it because, naively it never occurred to me that a bird had built it in the one day I was at work.

The first day saw nothing so I thought the Mom had abandoned it because she smelled my scent from the day before. But, the second day there were two Robin's eggs. And the third day, Four!

How do I know this? I can watch from the inside through the peep hole in the door.

I quickly put up a sign so no one would use the door and I leave through the garage.

Today the babies were born while I was at work and Mama is taking care of them. They are named after my Mama and her siblings- Filomena, Pasquale, Luigi, and Marianina. They are Italian birds, but eat worms, not spaghetti.

Although thrilled with this good luck of a bird at my door, I think I will move it when they are done. But, not too far away. After all we are now family.

Amazing process to watch!
by: Anonymous

Walked out today to find what I think is a robins nest. They are still in the building process. What a sight to behold ! My four year old Granddaughter is amazed! They are nesting on her deceased Granny's she'll wind chimes, building down into it like a bowl. Can't wait till the babies arrive!

this is not a robins nest. What is it. Is on our front door.
by: Anonymous

Was 4 eggs, now 4 little birds. Mom and Dad look like small sparrows, finch's, or some other wild bird. I have been looking at eggs birds and nests trying to ID them and there are so many types of bird that I can not find them. The eggs were less than 1 inch long and were white with Small streaks or speckles on one end.

Cara

Cara, don't be sad! Most likely, the nest was torn up by the Robins themselves, trying to kick the kids out of the nest. When the time comes, EVERYONE goes- no exceptions.

Our new family
by: Rosie

We too, had a Robin nest- but on the front porch light. The porch has a roof and it seemed as though the shelter was the intention.

It's as though the birds had studied our habits, because we set there frequently, day and night.
How entertaining it was! The Robins would swoop into the nest most of the time without us even knowing it, and leave almost as quiet.The same when the 4 little ones arrived.

When they left the nest, we had to remove it so the birds couldn't return. I was afraid the nest might become a fire hazard on top of the porch light.

If you can handle the inconvenience, I'd suggest enjoying at least ONE Robin experience. These birds are extremely smart and don't need our help- just our patience! Good luck.

We had the same thing...but a sad ending
by: Cara

We also had a beautiful nest built by a robin when we were away over spring break. I really thought the robin would leave when she realized how much we use that door (with 3 kids and a dog) but she seemed to understand that we would be in and out quickly.

She would simply fly away to a nearby tree and come back after a few minutes. We had 4 eggs that hatched 4 adorable little robins. They were doing great and had even opened their eyes to peek at us as we entered and left our house.

We were so sad today when we left our house and found the nest destroyed and all the baby birds gone. There had been an obvious struggle because only a few little feathers were left. It was a difficult lesson in how cruel nature can be.

Does anyone have any idea what could have done this? I'm thinking another bird because I don't think anything could climb our front door. : (

Robin nest in our front door wreath.
by: Belinda

We live in South Ogden and the same thing just happened to us. There were 5 Robin eggs and they hatched today. I'm wondering if we should use caution tape. What did you end up doing? I'm worried about visitors disturbing them. My husband even wanted to buy worms & leave them on our doorstep to make feeding easier. It's pretty cute that a Robin felt our home was safe enough to make their home. We're open for any suggestions on how to keep the birds feeling safe.

Such a beautiful story, my heart was touched by your kindness and the unusual placement of their nest. I would very much like to see an update in the future. Thank you for sharing.
