Life Begins On Outdoor Wednesday

Another Outdoor Wednesday with Susan. No where can you see such beauty that nature provides.  Drop in and check them out at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com

It is amazing how nature gives all the creatures as much or more knowledge then humans.  This is the nest of a pretty Robin.  She built it in my neighbor's shrub right next to their door.  It is just perfect in the inside and so smooth.

These are her eggs.
She was very faithful to stay in the next until her babies were hatched.

And, here they are.  She was very protective of them until they were big enough to leave the nest.  Then she trained them to fly.

Now their home is empty and waiting for a new family.

These pictures are amazing! Did you take them? The nest is so well hidden, yet the eggs are so bright...a contradiction.

I love this!! Twice in my life I have been fortunate enough to witness a Robin's nest like this! Just look at these precious blue eggs and these little fledglings!!
Made my evening!

Oh how "sweet" was that robin, nest, eggs hatched and then the babies just fly away and start their own families. Boy, is that an empty nest all ready for another family.

I love these photos you shared LV. This story is the story of life in humans too. You really captured the cycle of the robin's duty and life's work.Beautiful.
Love, Jeanne
