    Aw, I’m always amazed at animals’ parenting instincts.

      Oh that’s too funny. I’ve seen wrens do that kind of thing. They like hanging flower baskets too.

    Lovely photo. I never see the nests until in the winter when all the leaves are down.

      I found this one by accident. I spent a half hour searching for a Cardinal nest that I knew was in a group of shrubs. I finally gave up and as I was walking the path to leave I looked up and saw the robin.

    The leaves around Chicago are that far out? Wow – you’re way ahead of NS!

      Almost all the trees and plants woke up 4 to 5 weeks ahead of schedule. The flowering trees were in bloom the first week of April. Other than sneezing from a lot of tree pollen all at once, it’s been very nice.
