Shhhhh....

I knew something was going on a few weeks ago when, each time I'd water the verbena growing in a pot on the back deck, a robin would flap angrily up out of the larger ornamental container the verbena pot was resting in. I suspected a nest-- had in fact lifted the verbena and checked for one. I'd seen what I thought was the edge of a nest, but didn't want to disturb anything by investigating.

Today, while watering I checked again, only this time, when I lifted the verbena pot, I was met by the babies:

They really blend well with their surroundings, don't they? Strangely, it actually made for a worse shot when they both looked into the lens:



I replaced the verbena as quickly as I could after snapping these shots (only five in all). Good luck, babies.
