Robin Egg Blue

While I was away, we had another family move in.
On our window sill.
On the second floor.A robin has taken over an abandoned nest that was built at least three seasons ago.
It was built.
Blew off.
Rebuilt, and then abandoned.Yesterday morning, I went to water plants on the window sill and startled the bird, who startled me.
When I took the first look, there were two eggs.
By afternoon, there were three.This afternoon there were four.
I have yet to get a picture of her on the nest, but now that I closed the wooden blinds, I hope to sneak up sometime and catch her before she flies off. I do hope she stays long enough to hatch her young.
We have a great view of it from inside the house.
She has a great view too.
