Porch Light Robin Nest
by Pat Richardson
A robin has built a nest on top of my daughter's front porch light.
It's up too high for them to see inside the nest, but the robin is dive-bombing at everyone who goes in and out of their front door!
There's a deep red-breasted male who gets very upset when mama bird does, and he paces back and forth in the grass.
He is absolutely beautiful, and he seems to be a very attentive expectant father.
Add to this my daughter's male cat who can see all of this from her picture window, and he's going berserk inside.
Her boyfriend wanted to knock the nest down when they first saw it, but my daughter wouldn't let him.
I laughed until I cried as she was telling me about this.
Since the above 3 paragraphs were written, the eggs have all hatched.
There are four beautiful healthy baby robins in the nest now.
It's still up too high to see into the nest, but she's had success using her cell phone to take pictures.
My daughter is very proud of her "grandbirdies".
