Birds Nest Alley

There is a veritable nature center on our front porch! 
First a robin laid three little- SURPRISE ALERT- robin's egg blue eggs! In the petunia plant right outside our living room window! 
So I was able to get some great photos, either through the window, or on her few trips off to feed her poor little self. Prepare to be swooped though!
She also did an admirable job fiercely defending her nest from a cowbird who tried to steal it. That one slunk away with her feathers between her legs!



 First Day
 Second Day
 What's for lunch?
A monarch butterfly pupa I believe!


They never give up!
