Baby Birds

My kiddos made a surprising discovery under our deck a few weeks ago...

A robin family had built its nest on one of the support beams under our deck, and then filled the nest with eggs.

A few days ago, my kiddos came running up to me excitedly shouting, "Mom, the eggs have hatched!" My ds7 had to get down on his hands and knees and place the camera lens between the deck boards to get these pics. If you look very carefully, you may just see the little baby birds in the nest.

It's definitely a finer thing to have such an up-close view of God's handiwork!

Beautiful! There is nothing more beautiful than the color of robins eggs. We always had these under our deck growing up too.

How exciting! :D We have starlings making a nest in our grill. We haven't seen eggs yet though.
