This is a first for me. Mindy pointed out a Robins bird nest with eggs in a holly bush outside our front door. She had taken a picture to show me and I noted four eggs in the nest. By the time I was able to grab my own pic I noticed a hole in one egg and two others that were cracked. My immediate thought was that something had gotten to them and they weren't going to make it. But as I looked at the photo on the computer screen it dawned on me that a critter had not gotten to them - they were hatching.
Later when I went back for another look I found this little one resting from its hard work. Note, the shell it came from is gone. Apparently mother robin likes a clean house.
Before it got too dark I went for one last look and found we now have two hatchlings and the first one is mighty hungry with mouth wide open ready for a morsel.
