Last night when we returned home, it was evident the robins had lined the nest cup with grass.
This morning mama robin was sitting in the nest, not squirming, just sitting. Yea!

You mean you're gonna let those robins hang out on your balcony and not tell the homeowners association? They don't want that pesky nature stuff interfering with their planned development!

Congratulations. It sounds like the birds like you as much as you like them.

Sage, I'm loving the soap opera postings of your patio bird nest!
"Tune in tomorrow for another episode of the Nesting Robyn!" LOL!

We just got home and mama was down on the lawn with dad. Roger is going out to see if she is still gone so he can take an cell shot and see if there is an egg yet.

THERE IS AN EGG!

She's out there this morning laying the third egg! There were four two years ago when they nested in the same place. Odd, that wicker bookcase was on the balcony for years, at the other end and no birds chose to nest on it!

It takes me standing on the doorstep of the storage closet and holding the camera as high as I can to get the pix!
Lib, did you see the newly hatched goslings I got yesterday? They're on the what did you see bird thread.

This morning she was in the nest and seemed to be laying an egg, and sure enough, there was a third egg. The shot is on Rogers iphone so I don't know how to get it up here!

She was in the yard all afternoon with daddy robin but later she came back to the nest and is neatly tucked in. I don't know if she is laying a fourth egg, starting to incubate with three, or if she just wanted to stay out of the rain!

Aha! She just flew off the nest for one minute and Roger got this on his iPhone! There are four eggs so we can start counting now! 11-14 days to hatch! This is day 1
