The joy of nesting, more eggs...

A Robin's Nest

Among the trees
Is a bird's nest,
And in the nest
Her three eggs rest.

And in each egg--
Hush, you'll be heard!--
There lies asleep
A tiny bird.

~H.N. Bialik

Mama bird is not always here. I took this picture holding my camera way up high above the nest. I thought at first there were only three eggs, but if you look closely, there is also one located underneath the branch. This is the second time this nest was used this past two months. Here is the nest below after the first round of birdies flew the coop.
