Baby Robins' Diary
North Vancouver, B.C. Canada
We have lived in our house on Shavington St. in North Vancouver, Canada for over 40 years. Each season I hang a different wreath on our front door. The wreath I hung there this spring is made of a circle of grape vine with white roses, leaves, and little white flowers-all artificial.
And as of Thursday June 18th a robin's nest!
June 18, Thursday-I came home about 4 pm and went to unlock the front door, but something was different. I looked at the front door wreath and found what was different; there was a robin's nest built in it. And inside the robin's nest was one small blue egg.
June 20, Saturday-By today the robin had laid 2 more eggs. I learned that robins lay one egg a day, usually to a total of 4, but our robin only laid 3.
Day 1/July 6, Monday-The eggs have hatched and there are three fat pink worm like creatures in the nest. They are wiggling and making a faint peeping sound.
I guess we can take down the sign.
