For the second year in a row, Momma Robin has made her nest in the plum tree right outside the sunroom. I'm not sure why she did it again this year. She gets spooked easily with people coming and going (which happens all the time) and I think she even abandoned the eggs last year or lost them to a predator. Yet, she decided to return and try it again in the exact same place. She's been working on it now for about a week.
Yesterday she began sitting on the nest. The Daddy Robin keeps watch from a nearby tree.
Within a couple of hours she had laid her first egg. She took off for a little while but finally came back.
Within another couple of hours, she laid her second egg. WOW! Two in one day. Impressive. She must get hungry after laying an egg because she took off for a while after each one.
Today I took a look while she was away for a bit, and, low and behold, there was another egg! She's up to 3 now.
