Oh Man, Three More Mouths To Feed!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

Lucky for me they are not mouths I have to feed for the next 18 years or more. In fact I don't have to feed them at all.

There is a very persistent set of robins who comes around every year and tries to build a nest under our carport. This year they succeeded. It's been fun to watch and photograph them. I hope to get a few more before they fly the coop.

wow, Bob- lucky you!!!  We do get robins here but we never know when we'll see them. I was hoping they'd build a nest in our yard but haven't seen one. Hope you get more photos.

I do feel lucky to have them even though I tried to discourage them in the past Kathy Streib . I find it unusual that this batch of babies never peep. Usually a nest of babies make a lot of noise when the parents show up with food.

Thank you Michael Elliott . I am glad it's not my triplets BUT once my daughter is married (Oct this year) I'd find joy in her having triplets. 😊

Thank you Bill Salvatore - East Valley . Although I grew up during the Vietnam era and many of my friends served there I don't know any who did not come back. I am also not aware of my dad losing friends from WWI so our family has been very fortunate in that regards. That being said I am very thankful for those who did make the ultimate sacrifice.

Aww, how cute! Both the human babies and bird babies! We had something trying to build a nest in the engine of our side-by-side. We had to remove them so hopefully they put their nests somewhere safer.

Thank you Kat Palmiotti . I did cause this couple to relocate earlier when they built a nest on top of the door to my shed. I go in and out of the shed daily so that was not going to work but where they built under the carport is just fine.

Good morning Bob. Just closed on a suburban townhome and found an attempt to build a nest on the ledge above the front door. Fortunately the ledge was too narrow and the nest fell. The bird moved on. Wish it would have tried in the nearby tree. Enjoy your opportunity for more photos.

Good morning, Bob... you had me going there for a minute with your feature photo! For some reason, I've never had any birds building a nest on or near my homes.  They must know I have a cat.

I think the cat(s) are the key Nina Hollander, Broker , especially if you ever let them out of the house. Hope you are having a good week end. 😊
