On May 21 I wrote about our new tenant, a robin family. I have been looking in on the robin family every day since then. On May 29 I watched, as one of the babies was being fed. Last evening I saw that at least two of the three eggs had hatched.
This morning I walked back to our picnic pavilion to look in on Mama Robin and her babies. This is what I found.
My granddaughters are going to be heartbroken. Each day they have visited Grandma and Grandpa they have asked to see the Robin. Harper, June and I walk quietly to the picnic pavilion. With a finger across our lips (saying “shh” softly), we look up at the Robin’s nest. The girls were looking forward to seeing the baby robins one day.
