|The Mama Robin|
Once upon a time in Ottawa, Canada there lived a mama bird. She looks like a robin with her red breast. Robins are my favorite. We had lots of them in Illinois where I lived for a while as a little girl.
This mama robin built a nest for her baby birds under the porch of a little house on a quiet street. That house is where my nephew and his family live. He tried to document the bird's stay there and I believe he got some pretty good photos!

She worked very hard to keep them fed.

The little birds grew and grew!
Until one day they started leaving the little nest.

They had a very nice nesting area, protected from the elements, don't you think?
This was the best photo Daniel could get of one of the baby robins once it left the nest:

They were anxious to leave and get going out into the world. It's one of those circle of life things. It's officially summer and they're all gone now.
