It takes so little to fascinate me. Every day I have been taking a peek or two at the robin's nest in our spruce tree. I don't know much about robins, but this particular mama robin has chosen to construct her nest only about five feet off the ground. I've let my curiosity get the better of me a few times and have tried to take a peek while mama robin was roosting, thus scaring her away, but to my enormous relief she always returns. First there was one blue egg. Then there were three. Then four. And then... these.
So-ugly-they're-cute little fluffballs
