Mr. & Mrs. Robin~Round Two!

~If you can reason with a man 
you might be able to get along with him.~ 
~Edna May Randall 1907~


The two of them are back at the same nest in the wood shed that they built earlier this spring.


Ruffled Feathers
One Ruffle Feathered Momma Robin!


There were 4 pretty blue eggs again (here's photos from my post back in May), but it looks like there's only three babies. That nest sure fills up in a hurry...they grow like weeds!!


Young Robins
Overflowing the Nest


This was the best pic I could get of the babies in the nest...I was duckin' 'n divin' to keep from gettin' scalped by momma Robin!!!

I'm sure these lil' ones will be out of the nest within the week...now, to keep the dogs from gettin' 'um...

I'm linking this post us with FarmChick's Farm Photo Friday!!
Check out some other great photos!

I love the photo of the robin. Great shot! I also love the sunset photo in your photo header. We have beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Kansas, too. I'll be back to "poke" around your blog. Thanks for stopping by the County Line, too!

Wonderful, great shots. So well done.

WoW! Great shots! You are braver than I...we have a family of barn swallows nesting over our front door but there is no way I am going to get that close! Those little birds are just plain mean! LoL

Thanks for stopping by the Hillbilly-Hippie Homestead!

Grace & Peace

Enjoyed the Robin photos! One of my favorite birds, maybe THE favorite. :) Pretty neat to see the babies.

You are a brave lady to get that photo...We have wrens doing round 2 on the porch too...but they are tucked away in a faux hanging plant so I can't get a good photo of them.

Thanx for stopping by to visit...Hope Deb gets her site fixed soon, I miss her.

Blessings Kelsie

I like that photo of the nest, looks pretty cozy inthere. Our baby robins are out and trying to fly already.

Linda said...

I love the quote! We have swallows doing the same thing......right beside the door of the house:(

Mary said...

It took me a minute to see the little guys, that's a great photo! I have some sort of Jay hangin' around in my yard, there must be a nest close by, every time my cat stretches this bird goes bonkers!

Baby birds in a nest have a huge 'Awwww' score! I love watching them. Thanks for sharing!

Mama robin does look like she's a little miffed with you poking around her nest! They sure build a good nest.
