Robin Hatching

Tonight we happened to be outside at the exact moment when the first baby robin broke through the blue egg. Michaela and I were on the deck and watched the baby bird break the egg in two and slowly emerge. Two more blue eggs remain. While I do not believe in disturbing nests for photo purposes I did take a few snapshots through the deck boards to give you an idea of what we saw.

The girls are in the bath right now, and I hear them calling...its bedtime!

How cool! What did Michaela think of the baby bird? :) Can't wait to see you guys at the end of the week!!!

Sounds like a once in a lifetime event! I've never seen a robin hatch, pretty cool for the kids to see that.
