We 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 fledging. We used a ladder to go closer and take photos. It was an amazing experience. The parents took such a good care of the nest, taking turns until the day the bird babies fledged. You see four eggs hatching in the nest.
