We have a crazy Robin that doesn't know where to build a nest. Every year she puts it somewhere in a low tree or on my deck and either the cats get the nest or a mean BlueJay. Well she insisted on putting her nest in a small spruce tree beside my house. It is only 4 feet off the ground and there is a white cat that we keep running off and we have even let the dog out to chase the cat away. But I did take a picture of the baby birds - I couldn't resist. It just proves that spring is really here. I think I have been in denial about it being the end of May because my baby - who is 11 is going to graduate 5th grade and go into middle school. That really has me a mess. I don't want her to grow up so fast. Like the baby birds - they are growing so fast in that nest and in a week they will be too big to be in there - they will have to leave home. They just sit the whole time with their mouths open - hungry all the time. Or maybe they are just bored. I can hear them saying as I listen very closely "Am I eating because I'm hungry or because I'm bored. This nest is so boring and my brother and sister are taking up all the room."
