We had a really brutally cold night last night -- frost warning and everything (though as far as I can tell it didn't actually get to below freezing). There is a robin's nest up against our house that I've been keeping an eye on. We pissed off the momma bird yesterday by doing yardwork in her vicinity -- she kept fluttering around and glaring at us. I was worried that she wouldn't be on her eggs/ nest enough, given the temperatures.
This morning I've been checking -- the mom robin is there sometimes. I checked carefully to make sure she wasn't around (I know her usual spots) and grabbed the digital camera and took a picture. (I can't see the inside of the nest, but if I reach up the camera can "see" it.) Inconclusive, and I don't want to bother the nest any more.
They seem to have hatched, but I can't tell whether they're OK. The robin has been on the nest every time I've checked since I took the pic.
I can't listen for cheeping of course and won't be able to 'til sozlet gets home this afternoon... (I know I can just wait, but I keep thinking about this so thought I'd ask.)
