Ten days ago I took a picture of this robin's nest,
tucked behind the vines on the trellis G built.
Can't see it? Look closely.
Now do you see it?
Sheltered behind the clematis flowers.
Two of the three eggs are visible
(if one is atop a step ladder with one's camera).
For a while I wondered why I never saw a robin sitting on the nest.
Then I realized that I only looked when I came out the back door,
which is right by the trellis.
D'oh! Of course I'm not seeing a bird; I keep scaring them away.
Today, in yet another 100 plus degree day,
I was able to see one of the parents.
The other flew off just before I took this picture from inside our back door.
