Robins made a nest in a disused hanging planter under the edge of the deck:
It's at about eye level for me, so I just raised the phone camera above the edge and blindly snapped these images. The first was taken April 19. I've often wondered why these eggs evolved to be blue. Seems like a bad color if you want to go unnoticed.
April 23 (4 days later):
Newly-hatched chicks are not what I'd call the cutest things in the garden.
Days of constant rain made photos impossible, plus I pretty much forgot about them until May 2 (9 days later):
May 5 (3 days later) and they looked ready to fledge:
That last photo taken on May 7, but I bet it was already empty on the 6th.
I don't know why it surprises me that baby birds leave the nest so quickly, but it always does.
I saw a pair of robins collecting nesting materials again this morning. The same pair? Probably. I don't believe they reuse nests.
