4 birds hatched
For the past two weeks my brother and I have been watching a robin build its nest. Only a couple of days after the nest was completed there were three eggs in it and the next day there were four. A little more than a week later three of the eggs hatched. The egg that was laid last hatched last. Now the birds are about 5 days old and growing feathers.


  1. Wow! All I can think of is WOW! The blue is...is...so...BLUE!
    That must have been a very exciting find!

  2. Came over from Butternut Squash - your mum I'm guessing.

    Absolutely terrfic pictures - I never knew that robins' eggs were blue.


  3. What an adventure
    do hope all the little ones are doing well!

  4. Oh my gosh! You took wonderful pictures of the process. What a treat to view the nest and then the eggs and then the babies. Thanks!

  5. How wonderful you were able to capture all this without disturbinng the birds
    and what a wonderful color egg!
    I hope they are all doing well.

  6. Lovely photographs. My photography isn’t as good as yours, but you might like this video of chicks hatching.
