And, yes, that is our lawn.  It’s been raining for the entire month of June and the hubby hasn’t had a chance to mow it in quite some time.  Of course, today it is finally sunny for the first time in a long time, but of course it’s Thursday and he’s at work!

Hatching of the baby robins

On Friday, the first baby robin hatched, and the other hatched today.  I haven’t taken pictures today, but here is what Baby Robin #1 looked like!  My favorite bird research website is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.  Here is their robin page.  Standard clutch size is 3-5 eggs, but our nest only has two eggs.

Robin’s nest

Lookie what I found in our arborvitae!  They were trying to make a nest on the top of our exhaust vent that comes from the propane fireplace.  It took a bit of dissuading to make them give up that spot.  The arborvitae is a much better option!
