Four Little Robins

We had a robin build a nest on our porch light.  There was an empty one there for a while that I didn't move until last summer.  Since it was vacant early enough, another bird decided to make a home.  I noticed it in late May and had been taking pictures every couple days.  I couldn't see in from the step, but was able to hold my phone over it.  I finally saw eggs on June 8th and continued to document them as much as I could.  There is a video at the end as well.
 June 12th - babies!

 The mom and dad were not swooping in as much at the beginning, so I was able to lift the kids up to show them the baby birds.  Esme continued to talk about them and point to the nest as the days went by.
