Robin’s Egg…. Looks like today’s the day! Watch the eggs hatch here! Updates through-out the day!

I’m certainly no “ornithologist” but, shouldn’t we be seeing more progress than this?

Maybe, I’m driving the momma bird nuts. (I wait until she takes off to the back of the yard for food, to take pics….)

She carefully turns the eggs, and keeps them wam, all day and all night. She only leaves when the dog goes out. (She flies to the swingset and glares at the dog) and when I walk too close to the door wall.

Maybe it’s too cold.

Maybe- it’s just not time yet…. we’ll. just. keep. watching.

Noah suggested we pray for the baby birdies…..;)

And so we did.

Matthew 10:29-31
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Even the tiny birdies are held tenderly in his care….we’ll wait- in His time- they’ll hatch.

56 am

UPDATE: Our eggs @ 9:00 a.m.

Hmmm should I be worried? It’s rather chilly here—-

Keeping a wary eye on my through the doorwall… (or maybe she’s watching the 2 cats and bad dog Sami…)

the rest of the story- where the eggs are

(Where the Robin’s nest actually is- in the motion sensor light near my patio door a slightly less “romantic” view than I’ve been posting, for full disclosure;) )

Looks like I have some good news…. apparently the light hasn’t poached them….

Hatching

Keep checking back- I’ll be posting pics all day- as the hatching progresses!

The title above links to a website with information about Robin’s and their egg-laying-tending practices…

More soon.

    we have a dove under the carport with two eggs. she decided hubbys shelf unit would be a nice place. problem is he went under there to get something and she scared him silly the first time lol. being the bird lover he is, he is patiently waiting for the eggs to hatch and babies to fly away before doing any more projects that require him to go out there.

    How neat!! I just love watching the birds. I’ll check back. We’ve already given one mother bird 4 babies, and another mama bird 2. Our christmas wreath puts ’em out, baby!!
