Mrs. Pecky and Baskin Robin announce the arrival of several hatchlings. A joyous event for everyone. Especially Good Husband and myself. A couple of months ago the parents wanted desperately to come into our home and build their nest. Resigned they flew away and built a nest in a nearby tree. Those hatch-lings have now flown the nest.
The process is starting over again. A few weeks ago they started pecking again at the window. Once again we convinced them it wasn’t going to happen. They found a safe haven under the roof of the patio, secure on top of a birdcage. We barbecue, we garden, we drink our tea. We stay out of the flight path of robins bearing food. Mrs. P. watches from her nest. She feels safe and secure. She trusts us. They’ll raise this family under our caring eyes.
