Our backdoor tenant

We have a visitor just outside our back door! This nest is just on the other side of a lattice screen that is on the west side of our back porch. Richard noticed the nest several days ago, and told me there was a bird in the nest.

Mrs Robin didn't care for us being so nosy at first, but she's settled down for the most part and tries to ignore all the activity we have going in and out of the kitchen. However, she can only take it for so long and then she flies away, but only to the shrubs on the opposite of the driveway. She's back in a jiffy when she thinks we're not watching.

She has four eggs in the nest. It will be fun to watch the hatchlings when they arrive.
