Robins in my Cherry Tree

The dwarf cherry trees I had planted outside my bedroom window were supposed to get only 6 feet tall. Before long, they were towering giants. Early June one year, I noticed a robin build a nest. She constructed it directly in front  of the window where I could watch the entire life cycle. Removing the window screen enabled me to check on the development daily.

And to document it, I stuck my head out the window once a day to take photos when the mother was out and about. When we returned from a trip, I discovered the newly hatched baby robins. Mother Robin’s TLC was amazing. She scoured our yard for insects and other edibles. They grew rapidly and left the nest within four weeks.  One morning, the nest was empty, the last fledgling just about to take off and Mother Robin most likely ready for some well-deserved rest.
