A Family of Robin's

This spring we had a family of Robin's nesting 
in the pergola of our courtyard.  
It was incredible to witness nature so up close and personal, 
and to see how this busy momma bird took care of her little ones...
always there, feeding, nurturing, teaching...never tiring!  
She did what is innate any mother...without hesitation.
Keeping her eggs warm.
Bringing a big green worm to feed her little ones.
Watching over her brood.
I was always telling her that "she was ok."
Somehow she seemed to understand.
Papa Bird...always attentive...never too far away.
Making sure each siblings got their share.
"It is time to fly Momma?"
The final lesson...showing baby how to find worms...
