At the end of the last post, I shared a picture of the cute Robin’s eggs in her nest by the Holly tree. Sadly, a few days after they hatched, they were destroyed by a Crow. Sucks! 😦 I did manage to get a couple of final pics.

Little Robins. Only a day old.
Momma Robin laying on her babies. This was taken during my lunch break. When Mitch came home from work, only 3 hours later, the babies were gone and Momma Robin was chasing a Crow from her nest.
We hope she will lay eggs again in our tree in the future. We are now keeping our eyes on a Woodpecker family. It is challenging to get good “close up” pics even with my 75-300 mm telephoto lens. The nest is way up the tree. Here are a few I took today. Momma Woodpecker is super fast when she comes in to feed, but I hope to get a picture of her also.

Hoping to get some better pics soon. 🙂
