San Jose, CA, United States
I have a beautiful garden that attracts birds, bees, butterflies etc. California Robin nested in one of the trellises close to our kitchen. My husband and I watched the whole episode from the day we found the bird started building the nest, found the tiny little bluish eggs, eggs just hatching, developing feathers, and the little ones opening their moths to be fed and fledging. We used a ladder to go closer and take photos. It was an amazing experience. I even published the story in birds and Blooms. The parents took such a good care of the nest, taking turns until the day the bird babies fledged.
