Hello everyone-Close to two weeks ago I did a blog about a robin laying 4 eggs in a tree crotch only about 3' off the ground.
I didn't know how long before they would take to hatch. A very short 2 weeks later and so far two of them have hatched. When I peeked in the first time there was one hatched and one just coming out of the shell, So cool.
I didn't have my camera and when I came back Momma bird was sitting back on the nest so I sat there for a while as so not to disturb her.
It took me a while before I was able to get the pictures. They are so tiny. It doesn't really looks like two from the picture but they are very close together. This is my first time seeing baby robins being born. So far mama bird hasn't attacked me she has just flown away. She comes back as soon as see thinks it is safe.
Now an additional treat was earlier in the day I had checked my bluebird nests. I hadn't seen eggs in either nest when I had checked before but hadn't taken the time to check again until early today and I got another treat and addition to my garden/bird sanctuary.
They are older obviously than the robins and while they only have a hint of blue on them now that will change. . There looks to be 4 but not 100% sure.
I could see the two in the front but they are all snuggled together. I do hope they survive. They don't have the survival rate the robins do.
I have lost a few over the years that they have been coming around. What was disturbing was the earwig bugs in there. Hate those bugs. Hope they don't cause the babies to die. I don't know what has caused them to die but I am praying these 4 survive
