Nest cam!

This is so cool. Jonah Lisa, who writes one of the first blogs I started reading, recently discovered a robin's nest on her front porch. Click the button below to follow the Nest Cam. I'm finding it very exciting!



The button is in my left sidebar too, so you can continue to keep up with the growing avian family. And be sure to check out the rest of JL's blog; it's fantastic.

That is so cool! We just had some sparrow nests under our back deck, so cute watching the little fluff balls learn to fly! They have flown the coop now and the dogs are excited to have free range of the back yard again.

Not to be a total downer but tell her to not get too attached. I have had two nests built in one of my plants before. The first nest never made it, the birds left for some reason. The second nest the birds worked over a month to build, then they had eggs, and finally little baby birds, definitely over 4 being how loud the birds were. My 3 yr old was so excited to hear the birds. It was so cute to hear them squeal when it was feeding time. One day though I walked in and my dd said, "look mama its the mama bird". Well it wasn't. It was a huge Blue Jay hovering over the nest. I ran out to shoo it away but it was too late, he had eaten all the babies. I was so upset, mad I had left my house even. It depressed me and still makes me sad. I'm going to throw away that plant bc seeing it makes me sad. Silly given its nature but I was so excited that the birds were having babies. I had to explain to my dd the babies went away somewhere else. I hope the robin's make it. Tell her to watch out for Blue Jay's, they prey on eggs and babies.

How cute! Thanks for the link- it's a great blog! We've got a nest in our first grade hallway- I love seeing the birds so close up. Too high though to see if there are any eggs...

Such a great family learning experience! Jonah Lisa and her family do a splendid job of taking lovely pictures and writing up concise, readable reports for us all! The project really captures the joy of spring's return!

Thanks Beth! So glad people are enjoying this. We sure are. A lot of fun and a great learning experience no matter how it all ends. Nature will take its course and we'll learn a lesson one way or another.
