Robin's egg blue
We knew there were birds building a nest in one of the eaves of our garage, but only found out last weekend for sure that they are robins. The mother robin has been sitting on the eggs since then. Mr. T and our granddaughters set up a stepladder while the mother was off the nest temporarily and got the great pictures of the beautiful robins' eggs.
One of my granddaughters got this photo of the mother bird from quite a distance. She (the mother robin) is a bit skittish. And one more picture of the eggs. The large white object to the right is a large old-fashioned Christmas tree bulb. (We have these strung under the eaves of our garage.)
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
