Description

The parents of these 3 built their nest on our porch, lodged between the wall and attached porch light. All nests attempted here fail, as they fall during storms. Before a storm hit, my husband and I attached a basket right next to the porch light, and moved the nest into it before the robin was able to lay eggs. Luckily, the female robin returned, laid her eggs, and now we are observing their babies.
