Spring arrives!

Christine and I were strolling in Central Park last week on one of the bright days of this odd weather pattern we are experiencing, when we noticed a robin collecting worms. I cautioned Christine to be still so that we could see her fly up into the trees to feed her nestlings. To our surprise, she lifted herself about ten feet off the ground and landed on this apology for a nest!:

. . . she wakes up the kids . . .


. . . and up they pop . . . .

. . . proud mum . . . .


. . . feeding hungry mouths . .


Thinks, “That didn’t go far — I must get another beakful already!”

  2. Great pictures. Yes, I’d be a proud mom too! Nereida
