Can you see her?

While working under one of our trees, the b/f was receiving a terrific scolding from a nearby bird. After a bit of looking, he saw this:

We both had to find out if it was an active nest, so we climbed the tree (one at a time), and took a peek (being careful not to disturb anything). Five robin's eggs! (Sorry, no pic; I was holding on with both hands).

We finished up our work and got all our stuff out of the way; a while later, we tiptoed back and saw:

Mama Robin back on the nest! You can just see her head showing above the nest on the right.

I'm looking forward to watching the parents teach the young'uns how to forage. That is a common summertime sight out my kitchen window.
