What is my Wednesday update?

May 10, 2017

This is the robin family – you can see two youngsters, but there are at least three in the nest.

Seen on the road last week – this was taken outside Mt. Rushmore in SD.

As soon as we got home and I emptied my suitcase, Cmdr. Sam Vimes and his brother, Hobbes, jumped in.  Apparently they feel we should not go away again any time soon.

Why am I saying “chirp?”

May 9, 2017

The robin family that has been nesting over our back door down spout has successfully hatched three or four chicks.  This happened when we were out of town last week, so they had quiet family time while we were away.

Last year they tried twice to raise a family, but raccoons got the eggs both times.

If you look closely, you can see the nest looks kind of like a duplex because the robins built a brand new nest right on top of last year’s.

The chicks are getting pretty big.  I’ll bet they will fledge soon.  Nice.
