New Life

We're fortunate to have a bird nest in a tree close to our house where robins come back every year to lay their eggs. (Last year we got extra lucky to have two rounds of new babies in that spot!) Here are the latest birdies in our back yard. Their nest is just a little too high for me to get a close look at them, so lifting my camera up above them worked well to give me this peek.

It has been very interesting to see that the mother and father birds have taken turns feeding and protecting their babies. We do not remember observing this in past years, so it is very interesting to see this almost equal share in the workload of raising young birdies. :)
