A robin family has moved in...

...right next to my front door. I have a tall evergreen (some run--of-the mill spruce or something like that) right next to the front door. I recently noticed that every time I walked in or out of my front door, a bird flew out of the bush. So I peeked in the other day and saw a wonderfully constructed nest with 3 bright blue eggs carefully arranged inside. Robin's Eggs!

Poor birds, though. They have a fit everytime someone comes in or out of the door, even at night when they should be asleep. I hope they settle down long enough to hatch the eggs. Maybe I should think about using the back door for awhile until the little ones fledge.

I also hope the don't end up flying inside my house by accident!
