Four Robin Eggs in Nest
Robins Build Nest in Easter Door Wreath
Three years ago the Robinsons built their first nest on my Easter wreath on the back porch.
I watched and photographed each step of this amazing process. Such delight!
Year 2 I was pleased to have them return to build again.
However my Dexter(pit bull) was taking an extreme interest and I feared for their safety.
As baby #4 departed from the nest I felt it best to take down the wreath to avoid any future trauma.
Year three The Robinsons arrived and were noticeably unhappy that their nesting place had disappeared.
I felt horrible not to provide this haven but it was in their best interest.
Sadly my Dexter crossed the rainbow bridge late that summer.
So this year as I prepared Easter decorations I rehung the wreath to see if the Robinsons would be back in town.
To my delight they did return and began building a new abode in the wreath.
I feel that they know me now as they are not particularly bothered as I come and go through the back porch.
I anxiously await seeing the beautiful blue eggs and gorgeous young birds that will entertain me this spring season.
So grateful to have a safe place for them to live!
