Be Born My Sisters!

This is a robin's next in my front yard. My family loves spring and summer when we get to see the birds building nests. The first time we photographed this nest, it was empty but we noticed the bird had used a piece of blue ribbon in the nest so we remembered it. We continued to see a bird around the tree, so a couple of weeks later we tried again. What an amazing surprise!
