A dedicated Mother

We have two Robins nesting.  The one in the picture is in our crabapple tree which looks like it will be bursting into bloom around Mothers Day.   Mom has been on her nest for about a week now and her mate stays nearby on the ground, offering protection when necessary.   The other nest is over our back door on the  porch light.  Since we tend to use this door frequently, she's become quite a Nervous Nellie, but I can't blame her.   We are being quite generous in letting her stay there without rent, the least she can do is not squawk at us every time we need to come or go.   Just fly to the neighbors tree and be patient, we'll be gone in a minute or two!
