A Bird in the Tree....

Before winter sets in, let me share my summer birds.  We have had robins nest around our house every year.  They seem to be moving where they nest.

This year they nested right beside the bird feeder in the Japanese maple in front of our house.

It doesn't take robins long to lay a clutch and hatch them out.  This mama looked young to me and I wondered if she was one of the robins born in that tree.

She is quite handsome for a robin.

Unlike the babies who are naked and rather odd looking.

Mouth open constantly.

But, the reason that I had to share these pictures is that I caught a snap of the last baby robin as he was learning to fly on my lilies. 

It makes a pretty picture.
