Lately I’ve been writing about birds, and I’m very ok with that! Birds have been around for… what, like at least a decade right? But only recently have I been interested in them. It mostly came from when I started taking pictures of birds at a Florida beach. Check out a few photos of eagles, cormorants, woodpeckers, and more in either of these posts…
Back here in Tennessee, though, it’s only been a few days since these robins hatched and their skin is already darkening. It amazes me how quickly they are looking more and more like the birds they will become. So if you’ve been following along, you know there were four eggs in the nest in front of my house, three eggs which have hatched and a lone blue egg still resting in the nest. My guess is it won’t hatch, sadly, but what happens to it remains to be seen. Sad news aside, here are a few recent pics, including the first photos of mom and dad! They were hovering (like any good protective parent?) above me right before they dive bombed me for interrupting their lives… again.
Is it just me or are they growing rapidly? Do you think the last egg will hatch? Let me know in the comments.
