Clint and I have been admiring a new home on our property, established in a vintage John Deere tractor that he hopes to restore one day. A gorgeous little nest that held the most brilliant turquoise eggs.
Mama's been diligently covering those eggs—you can just see her in this photo:
...and Monday, I got a text from Clint that read "we got tractor babies!"
Indeed we do, 3 little tractor-baby Robins, whose eyes are not yet open, but are still capable of making the most interesting horking and gorking sounds.
We sneak in for peeks while Mama flies just out of our reach, but keeps a watchful eye on us as we admire hers.
All of these photos are Clint's; we hope to update you on Grandbirdie's progress through the spring.
