We have hatched robins! Yesterday I checked and saw one had hatched, and by this afternoon we have 3. Only one little egg left, most likely will hatch in the next day or so. They are so tiny. Little bits of pink skin and fuzz.
We have been reading about robin eggs and juveniles, and we only have 10-15 days after hatching before they start to dive out of the nest. The nest is just above my eye level, so I have been holding the camera up in the air and taking pix down into the nest when the mom is gone. I did get a video for the boys too - we don't want to disturb them too much, but they really want to see as we go along. The birds picked the perfect spot for the nest - our yard has lots of spots to hide, lots of worms, fresh water, and an arbor with pot holders which is so convenient for nest building.
