In this first of two parts, I will tell a story of the Robins. Today’s story is about the nest. While out on a walk with my trusty camera recently, I heard and saw several American Robins. I saw one of the Robins fly up to a crotch in the limbs of a huge nearby tree and settle in a nest. I did get a picture of that Robin’s head just above the rim of the nest. I was able to identify the bird because of having seen that tell-tale white circle around its eye.
I have included other photographs of other American Robins. One may be a mate to that one who was sitting on the nest but I am not certain about it. American Robins are lovely medium-sized brown and burnt orange colored birds. They hunt for worms and other insects on the ground. We seem to have a lot of these birds in my area now. Please click on the thumbnail photo to see the large version of that picture. Enjoy!
