A couple of weeks ago, as we peered down into the red honeysuckle bush beside our deck we spotted this robin's nest with 3 little eggs.

I was afraid that I may have interrupted the setting process when I startled the mama bird a few times to check on them or to take a photo, but they hatched about 2 days ago. It appears that Papa robin is babysitting in one of the photos.

Will try to add more photos as they grow. Think I'm finally getting the hang of the zoom features on this newer Olympus Camedia camera.
