Robin's Egg.... Looks like today's the day! Watch the eggs hatch here! Updates through-out the day!

eggs 12:35

eggs @ 12:35

I'm certainly no "ornithologist" but, shouldn't we be seeing more progress than this?

Maybe, I'm driving the momma bird nuts. (I wait until she takes off to the back of the yard for food, to take pics....)

She carefully turns the eggs, and keeps them wam, all day and all night. She only leaves when the dog goes out. (She flies to the swingset and glares at the dog) and when I walk too close to the door wall.

Maybe it's too cold.

Maybe- it's just not time yet.... we'll. just. keep. watching.

Noah suggested we pray for the baby birdies.....;)

And so we did.

Matthew 10:29-31
"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."

Even the tiny birdies are held tenderly in his care....we'll wait- in His time- they'll hatch.

eggs at 8:56 am

UPDATE: Our eggs @ 9:00 a.m.

Hmmm should I be worried? It's rather chilly here----

momma on her nest

Keeping a wary eye on my through the doorwall... (or maybe she's watching the 2 cats and bad dog Sami...)


the rest of the story- where the eggs are

(Where the Robin's nest actually is- in the motion sensor light near my patio door a slightly less "romantic" view than I've been posting, for full disclosure;) )

Looks like I have some good news.... apparently the light hasn't poached them....


Keep checking back- I'll be posting pics all day- as the hatching progresses!

The title above links to a website with information about Robin's and their egg-laying-tending practices...

More soon.
