We Had To Find a Way To See What Was Inside This Nest at Camp
When we arrived at camp for the Memorial Day weekend, it had been two weeks since our last visit. In that time, a nest had been built under the roof of the porch. We thought it was a robin's nest, but wanted to find out for sure.
The problem is that it was a little too high to see into the nest. The mother was no where to be found, probably because we had arrived for the weekend and we spending most of it on the porch.
So, Michele grabbed her cell phone, strapped it to a stick with some hair elastics and lifted it up to the nest saying "cheese" to trigger the voice activated shutter. She hates cheese by the way.
This is what we found inside:
I'm afraid these eggs might not make it as we never saw the mother for three days. Not a single bird in the nest because we were there. Sorry though. We aren't giving up our Memorial Day weekend on the porch for some eggs.
We're away for three more days, so maybe the mother will come back to do her thing. I'm no robin expert, but I'm pretty sure they need to sit on these things or something.
I'll let you know what we find when we get back this weekend.
