Robin Family Supper Time
Mother and Father Robin bring worms to hungry babies in nest.
Mother and Father Robin bring worms to hungry babies in nest.
This baby robin landed under a nearby tree while I was weeding one of my flower beds. The parents were in a nearby tree scolding me, so I took a few pics then left so that they could lead him to a safer spot.
A nest fell out of our Maple Tree and one nestling came with it. It stayed in the yard all afternoon. The Mama was quite attentive.
Both happy and and sad when I discovered this beautiful robin had built this nest on the ledge above our front door on the porch! We had to block the window from the inside because our living room light would disturb the birds at night, and that was not a problem. But we had to use the back door to get in and out of our house, which was inconvenient! The good news is that the venture was successful, and the fledglings left successfully:)
While walking around at Tagawa Gardens nursery I noticed this nest up on the frame of the shades along the sidewalk too hight to look into- I saw momma robin fly away and took an overhead shot to find these perfect little eggs
This American Robin nest was on the deck railing of my brother-in-law’s parents’ house, so it was easy to take a photo of. The eggs were so blue and perfect, it was like it wasn’t even real.
Just fledged robin.

Robins nesting in my yard.
We were able to follow these four babies from eggs to fledglings. One of only a few pictures we could get because mom and dad robin were very good at parenting.
Triplet newborn American Robins – only a couple of days old.
These four were getting ready to leave the nest

This little Robin was the dominant one in the nest and would frequently step all over the other little baby to get first dibs at lunch! Luckily, there was a natural opening in the bush where the nest was located, so I had a great time watching them over the 2 weeks we were on vacation!
After building a nest in my garden and not having her eggs hatch the mother built a second nest in my grape vines. I didn’t find it until she’d laid three eggs, which all hatched in the last two days. I’ve been growing the grape vines for 4 years and this year was going to be my “crop” year, however with the nest I can’t really get close and I certainly couldn’t spray the vines insects, etc. The crop is pretty well half destroyed by bugs / black rot, but the bird family is doing just fine.
This sweet little guy was hoping around in our yard and presented us with a sweet photo op 🙂

Baby American robin in my front yard
My wife and I were sitting in a bird blind for about 15 minutes before we heard this “tiny” little cheep…. We turned around to see this little guy peaking his or her head out of the nest. I took this photo and we immediately exited the bird blind. As we did we saw one of the parents flying into the blind with a large worm in its beak.

Persistent robin attempted to build a nest on a broom in our garage, twice in a tiny beam extending from the roof, once in our bedroom window, on the spotlight on the garage and finally at the top of our open bathroom window!
A mother robin laid her eggs in a nest in our appletree next to our grden. It was fun watching the babies grow. Then one morning they were gone.The fledgelings left for the big wide world. Good Luck come back next year.
found different eggs in this nest. I am a new birder and found this strange.thank you
The color of the 5 azure blue eggs complimented the colors in the weath as well as the color of the background house siding.
A robin built a nest in a fern I have hanging steps from my front door while we were on vacation. I thought she would abandon it with all the in/out traffic on the porch including my cat, but she has persevered, and even lets my cat lie on the porch underneath the fern! The fern is only partially covered from the elements and she has encountered heavy rain and strong winds.
First glimpse of the Robin nest I had been watching. She would never leave the nest when I was watching until this time.
This nest was found in my rhododendron and the blues of the eggs were vibrant compared to the pink flowers and green leaves!!! Georgous!!!
It wasn’t hard to get shots of the robin parents. They came to the nest every few minutes all day. Before going to the nest, they would sit on a branch and chirp a sweet repeating sound. I grew to recognize it as meaning, “I’m coming with a snack. I’ll be there in just a minute.”
This little guy, with his 3 other siblings, were making their first attempts at the big-wide-world. Their nest was only a few feet from the deck so, apparently, mom wasn’t too concerned about human activity – I always enjoy it when birds see us as allies and not predators. Feeding and providing as much habitat to cater to their needs has been a passion of mine for many years and they have rewarded my efforts with their presence!
I spent a lot of time in my back yard this summer shooting this nest. The parents brought bugs and worms every few minutes for almost two weeks. In this photo, I believe the babies had hatched just a few days before.
After closely watching the babies for severs all weeks they decided to fledge on the day I was off work.
This is our first nest ever in our vineyard.
This lady little lady didn’t have any trouble making our home her home.
I found this beautiful nest while hiking in May 2014 at Sapsucker woods. It looks like a cowbird decided to lay her egg in the bluebird egg nest. (I’m pretty sure these are bluebird eggs.)
Four young American Robins wait for the mother to return with food
Robin fledglings, they left the nest 2 days later.
The start of a nest.
This nest is only 4 feet from the ground and right by the road. The chicks were quiet, and I didn’t notice them or the nest. Then a parent showed up with lunch. The noise these little ones can make!!!
I thought mama robin was building a nest out of my twig and silk leaf wreath on the front porch wall of our log cabin, but it turns out she built a nest ON the wreath.
The robins built this nest in our cherry tree between the drive way and the street. We were thrilled to see the nest and my son used a stepladder to catch this quick glimpse while the mother robin flew off to catch a worm.
A clutch of four robin eggs were outside my kitchen window in the crook of a climbing hydrangea – from inside, I was able to watch all four hatch. This was the first and it was in the middle of a heat wave. The eyes weren’t open and the others were just beginning to hatch. Looks like hard work!
