A Pleasant Surprise

We don't use our front door real often. Earlier today I opened the front door to get some fresh air into the house. Imagine my surprise when I saw a robins nest on our deck and the four beautiful blue eggs inside. I had no idea we had some busy birds creating a temporary home on our deck. They are using the ledge where the flower boxes go, we took them off last fall and haven't got them put back up yet. We have a lot of neighborhood cats here. I appreciate their efforts in keeping the mouse population down in the neighborhood. But I am worried that they will find the eggs and the baby birds. That happened to one of our neighbors last year and he wasn't very happy. I will do my best to "guard" the nest when I can.
