Backyard Birds

It took a while before we saw this Robin in her nest in the tree in our backyard

It has been an amazing experience having this Robin in our tree.  We have started eating dinner out on our deck.  One night we just happened to look up and spot the Robin quitely watching us.  She is a good Mama protection her babies.  Adriana has enjoyed watching the Robin although James isn't quite sure what to make of her.  He wants her to go away  so we often caught him yelling at her to go away.  Three days ago while cooking on the grill Mama looked up and saw the robin feeding her baby chicks:

While Mama was watching the robin and babies she took a really bad video:

Mama is amazed at the aw of God's creation. Seeing the daddy Robin feed the babies was so amazing. Really sorry for the poor video but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

It is amazing that Adriana gets to see these robins and babies in our yard. I beleive this is homeschooling at it's best.
