Baby Birds

One by one the baby Robins are hatching! Right on schedule!

There are two in the photo - they're wrapped around each other, undoubtedly conserving their body heat. The first one emerged on Easter, yesterday, and the second one must have come out today.

Just as I started shooting, Mama, who was procuring insects from the front yard below, saw movement in the window. She made a beeline for the sill - funny to see a bird aimed straight for your head - right between the eyes!

"Just what do you think you're doing??"

Now, waiting on the last two.
