Robin successfully nests in porch planter

 Photos by Nancy Wallace

The two photos above appeared in a blog I wrote back on June 19.   They were taken by my sister-in-law and show a robin's nest in a small planter on a porch of her and my brother's house in Parry Sound.   Well, the robin prevailed, finished and occupied the nest, and laid three eggs.   She is pictured below sitting on those three eggs and they will probably be hatching very soon.   Presumably, the herbs are only available for picking when the robin occasionally leaves the nest.

The finishing touch is this patio umbrella to protect the nest and the baby robins from soaking rain or broiling sunshine.
Please comment if you wish.

It seems like a great, private place for a nest, despite being so close to humans!
