First there was one, then two and now three

Good Morning Everyone!

We are adjusting at our house as Natalie is home from college, Sam is still in school, Drew is working for a construction company and I'm trying to feed and keep up with the laundry.  

I'm sharing what happened over the last few weeks.
We had a lot of wind and I had a birds nest (I was using for decoration outside) that blew off so I haphazardly threw it in the planter by the backdoor.

I went to the shop came home and found a Robin's egg in the nest. 
 I thought that Dave had found one while mowing and just threw it in the nest.

The next time I went out the door there were 2 eggs.  
This time I did a double take, pondered the situation and kept walking to the car.

That evening I went out and found a 3rd egg.
Some poor Robin decided to lay her eggs in my planter right by the backdoor of our house.

I'm not sure who has surprised who more? 
 The Robin or the kids.
You can walk out the back door and the poor Robin flies out of the nest and sometimes hits her head on the awning and then poops or the kids come home in the dark and she flies out of the nest and scares them.
Secretly, I kinda like that Mrs. Robin keeps them on their toes! ;) 
 especially when they are late coming home.

Mrs. Robin has actually added to the nest. 
 The white paper comes from the chicken shed and it's what we put in the nesters for the chickens.

Here is the place where Mrs. Robin has made her home.
I really don't want to disturb her so for now my planter is a home.

Happy Hooking!
