Lovely Surprise

First and foremost ladies, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your heartfelt comments on my last post. You have no idea how much your kind words and suggestions helped to empower me. It definitely helped to revive me and realize I am doing the best I can at the present. What it also taught me was that I have a great support system with all of you. Thanks, I hope I can do the same for someone too someday.

Now I have a little mystery story via photos to share with all of you. I have been capturing these pictures for at least a month and waiting and waiting for the perfect picture to end the story. Do I have you wondering????? I hope so!

Well, it started with this and I was curious.

I was all set to take my basket down and put my spring flowers in! Then I looked more closely

Oh my, I think a nest is starting.................

Nothing happened for days............I checked every few days.

Then I turned around one day

What did I see but this mess on the breezeway floor.............?

So I looked UP!

How did this happen and when!

So well constructed and completely under my nose. Very sneaky!

So what kind of bird did this and how will I get in and out of my side door without disturbing this?     "Carefully" and "Quietly"

First peek through the glass window.

Up close and personal........but still don't know what kind of bird.

A lot of sitting was happening

She flew away and it was a sweet momma Robin. So when will she have the babies? She has been sitting for what seems like weeks.

Then I saw something

She's feeding, but where are they!

Do you see them?

They are so hungry......all the time

And look they are growing......fast!

More please!

Thanks mom, now we're happy and sleepy.

See the feathers starting?

More feeding

More contentment

A Very Happy and Proud Mommy!

Hope you enjoyed this happy ending story! It's been such fun watching. I will definitely keep you up to date if I could ever be so lucky to see them leave the nest!

Thanks for popping in and Thank you in advance for your comments. I love them all and reading them with much happiness.



  1. How exciting Robin and what a privilege to witness nature so close at hand.
    I think the photo of them sleeping is so cute!
    Have a wonderful weekend. :)

  2. I have been trying to search your birdie out. Could it be this one? http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/564/overview/Orchard_Oriole.aspx very similar but yours has a yellow beak. If so these are in decline. x

  3. how gorgeous! And you got so close to them!!! Smart to make it nice and ihgh rather than in your basket!
    Wishing you a lovely weekend!!

  4. I love this post, my sister Cludia just had 2 weeks of photos of a nest and they were amazing. Keep posting as we want to see these babies grow up. Glad you are feeling better,

  5. How appropriate that a Robin would build a Robin's nest in "MyNestofYarnandRobins"! Great photos shoot of them.. and I just cracked up after they ate and took their nap. Awwwwwww....cute!!

  6. What a lovely story, Robin! And what would be more perfect nest to show your blog than a Robin's? Thank you so much sharing!

    It's sunny and pretty here after a cold and rainy week, and I am wishing you the most wonderful week dear friend! Sunshine!


  7. wow look at that! Fantastic photos Robin especially the one of the chicks having 40 winks!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Love Tickety-boo

  8. What a wonderful chance to see a little nest filled with baby birds! They look so sweet, and your photos tell the story so well.
    I loved seeing their little heads peeking out with wide open beaks, and then fast asleep! Have happy weekend, Robin!

  9. What a clever photographer you are Robin, to get such good close up shots........thanks for sharing your pics with us, it's lovely to get a complete account...... from the building of the nest to the sweet little birdies taking a nap.

    Have a lovely summer, lily x

  10. Oh these images are wonderful! I especially love the ones of the sleepy babies.

  11. Hi there Robin, I'm back from my hols! Great to hear that you got some help from your last post. I always believe a problem shared is a problem halved. You ARE doing such a good job and you ARE a great daughter, never forget that.
    Your photos in this post were so lovely, it was great to find several sweet baby birdies in Robin's nest......how apt. Happy 1st day of summer and take care,
    Jane x

  12. It's a great story!!! I loved it!
    We have a nest in the hall of our apartment building too... we didn't noticed until it was there and she is sitting still!
    thanks for the lovely pictures!
