Waiting for the Robins to Hatch
|We have a lot of Robins in our yard. There are several other kinds of birds around also but I never see where they nest.|
|One Robin pair has made a nest right outside our kitchen window. There was a nest in the same spot last summer.|
My husband trimmed the bush slightly so we can look through the window and see them sitting on their nest.
The eggs take about two weeks to hatch. Through the kitchen window, we will be able to see them being fed for about two weeks.
By the time they are ready to fly, they will have grown to make the nest very full!
Once they leave the nest, they look as big as their parents. But we can tell which one are the youngsters because they still squawk for their parents to feed them.
The parents do keep feeding them but I'm not sure for how long.
Watching the wildlife is one of my hobbies.
