American Robin (nesting)

Turdus migratorius


This spotting is about a nest. It is a Robin's nest and contains four eggs. The nest is constructed of grasses and with a shaped, solid inner cup of mud which is also lined with softer grasses. The Robin chose to build the nest in the back of a plastic lawn lounge which is standing and leaning against the bottom support board of the porch.


Backyard. Under the porch. We are surrounded by woods but the Robin chose under the porch for its nest.


Robins nest twice in a season and reuse the original nest. They also tend to return to areas where they have nested before. This is the third year in a row that a Robin has nested under the porch.

It's a win-win situation, ConorSheaWing: She dos not have to start all over and has a good place to raise the Robin Family. Whiile she's nesting and raising her young, I have a wonderful opportunity to observe and (hopefully) photograph the Robin Family (and I don't have to rush to paint the porch ;) )

I'm glad you're letting her keep coming back, I appreciate your kindness towards nature.
