They Hatched!

This morning I heard the sounds of sweet peeps coming from the burning bush outside our great room window. I quickly ran to get my camera since I knew that sound could only mean the robin eggs have finally hatched. They must have hatched sometime late yesterday because earlier in the day when I looked there were still only eggs in the nest.


Look at how precious they are. So very small they can't even lift their heads up to feed but Mama is bending down to feed them and Papa is standing guard while she does. I only see two hatched in the nest and there were 3 eggs. I'm not sure if a third baby is hiding beneath the other two or if it just hasn't hatched yet. Either way I hope it's still alive.

I'll keep photo journaling this wonderful sight and share it with you as things progress.

How exciting! It reminds me of a small cedar waxwing my wife and I saved from off the ground last year.

Gosh...they are soo...ooo helpless and naked looking. I'm looking forward to watching them grow. Wild things encounter many life-threatening encounters in their short lives...so I hope they make it.

I've never seen birdies this little before... they don't have any real feathers yet. Mama birdie lays over them to keep them warm it's so cute I wish I could get a picture of that but every time I pull the camera out she flies away. -Jackie

What a great pic Jackie. It looks like you'll have a "birds eye view" of this nest! That will make it all the more fun to watch. I worried over the baby finches that hatched in a basket on my front door wreath too. I could never see all four babies (there were four eggs) until they got much bigger. I bet your three eggs will turn out to be three babies. It's interesting that birds are still nesting ~ I guess I was thinking that "season" was over??
