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!

Birds are amazing creatures, aren't they?  Here in Colorado the red-winged black birds can be very protective of their nests.

Lizette, I LOVED reading that!  What wonderful good fortune you will have, it will be worth it.  I wish they'd come and nest on my front door :)

Leon- I have to say it has been kind of sweet having them there. It has taught me patience!

Carole - Really? Is this a good omen for good fortune? It's like having a fortune cookie on my door. This morning I got to see Larry, Curlie and Moe take their first flight! It was so exciting! So far they have not been back in the nest. Good thing I took the pic yesterday. I guess they are ready to find their own good fortune.

Thesa - Thanks!!

Lizette, every year I have wrens that build Mud nests up under my patio covers in the backyard. I wash them down every year but they rebuild and ye if you don't get there in time they lay them eggs and you have to wait it out. they are very protective of the nest also.

Lizette, it sure is from this perspective!  Your front door is where all the good energy enters (no, you're not supposed to use those wonderfully convenient garage doors so many homes have now) and you had pure FIRE energy living on it---AND getting in despite attempts to keep it out :)  These are some of the wonderful signs we get --- so share the good news coming your way!

Danny - Looks like you work hard at keeping them out also!

Carole - I hope it is working. It has been a bit quiet over here today but there has been quite a bit of Fire coming my way lately.

Lizette, I had a wonderful comment today by a wonderful person on AR, Jo-Anne Smith who has a group called Inspiration.  She posted a comment on my blog about signs and mentions ROBINS....

So I'm sending you there so you can read it, she knows much more about it than I but I thought you would enjoy it.  And you'd love her group.

Are you missing the SIGNS? You're likely getting them everyday!

You're going to love what she says about Robins :)
