I was outside BBQing and discovered that we have a robin's nest in one of our flowering Elders'. Robins make such a neat little compact nest. I was hoping I could get pics of the little robins...I thought she was sitting on eggs...but to my surprise...little baby robins, not very old. It looks like she has 3 for sure...only two smiled for the camera!
Magpies, on the other hand, are pretty messy...twigs are scattered everywhere all the way down the spruce tree...their nest is pretty high up and so it is hard to get a clear view...but it is a very large nest. Sadly, they lost a baby...he was either nudged or tried to fly...poor thing. They may come back to nest there again next year.
Have a great week everyone!
