For the last couple of days we have been watching a momma bird to be. So far she has built a nest and laid two eggs! She laid her eggs in a nest in our Redbud Tree.
She is a Robin. Robins have blue eggs and lay their eggs in the morning after sunrise. And after a breakfast of worms, worms, worms, worms. She may lay four eggs.
She will sit on the eggs two weeks and then when they hatch, she will probably be thinking “hungry, hungry, hungry always hungry!”. Baby birds are always hungry!
She will probably tell her kids, “when you grow up I hope you have kids that put you through what you put me through!”
One of her kids will probably say “that’s what Grandpa says he kept on telling you! Say? What’s for breakfast?”
Momma Robin will say, “Worms.”
Another kid will say, “Worms? Again?”
We expect the babies to hatch around the 12th of May! We will keep you posted!

It is fun watching birds and you have a good spot to see what is happening. Hope you learn a lot about them as you watch not only the Robin but other birds to.
