Empty Nest

It's a not too chilly January day and I look out my window and see an empty nest. The Robins that were hatched there are long gone. This isn't the first nest I've found on my property, and certainly won't be the last. But, when I first spotted it last June, in a young tree, I was amazed at how the Robin created such a beautiful, safe, home. I peeked in every so often to see how they were growing... and before I knew it, they were gone.

Great post Michelle! I love winter, but I do miss all the baby birds! I love your shots! You really get a feeling of "peeking in" on the little ones!

Thank you all! They were so cute! Can't wait until spring time so I can find another nest!
