The clutch of the American robin can be as large as 5 eggs but this nest is more typical. Only the female sits atop the eggs for incubation which lasts about 14 days.
Backyard fence row in residential area of Springfield, Missouri.
This was happened upon and since we were right there we photographed the nest. I've never seen a robin nest so low to the ground.
