The Kentucky Robins That Moved Right On IN

 Every spring here in Kentucky, I fight with the mommy Robins. They try to build their nests in the hanging baskets if I put them out too early. This year I thought I had outsmarted them because I held off on buying the ferns till the first of May.

I have a wreath on the front door that one Robin tried to put some twigs in to get it started. Those I threw out and I thought she had given up.

One day I noticed a bird flying off my wreath again but this time when I took a closer look I found a whole nest right at the very top.

As I brought a stool out of the house to get a better look I saw it was too late to tear it down...there were 3 little blue eggs inside.

Now, I was committed to waiting it out. This became a job because everyone opens the front door. I became fearful that the door would open too quickly and the mommy would fly into the house.

Finally this fear actually happened when a friend opened the door too fast and there she was flying around and hitting the ceiling in the living room!! That had my heart pumping for a few minutes till we could get both doors open and get her to fly out! Whew! This was starting to be another job!

Now 3 babies(Larry,Curlie & Moe) are getting their feathers and I am patiently waiting for them to learn how to fly so I can have some closure.

As you can see they are not afraid of me at all and will even let me touch their beaks. That's cool!

Yeah...life is sure exciting here at the Lizette Home Office!
