I enjoyed watching this robin and mate prepare their nest and keep it safe from invading squirrels. High drama indeed.   I hope I’ll be able to watch their babies take first flight.

  23. We seem to be missing some of our birds this yr and a team of grackles have settled in place of lost crows. Robins are the same as ever, though– tough little worm-hunters.
    Fabulous photo!

  24. What a great opportunity you got.
    To make the nest inaccessible to squirrel you may need to round-up the
    tree trunk (more than 2′ wide) with plastic film (cling film is too thin) and apply
    Vaseline kind. And if squirrel jump from other branch, cut it to make 3′ gap.
    Good luck (to Robin and You ) 🙂

  25. have seen some interesting bird’s nests in cacti in the Sonora desert! You would have a ball here with you camera!

  26. Beautiful close-up Elena 🙂
