Baby Robins. The final chapter.

No really. Sadly I report to you all, dear blog friends… They are dead. All three of the were in the nest, cold & stuff the morning after I took a great video, that I’ll post next week..
So sad. Again, I’m positive I was not touching anywhere near the nest or birds. I only went out when momma was away etc. I feel so bad. Nature sucks.

I was creatively using the baby robins experiment to keep me positive as my 14 year old best dog friend Amos was in the late late winter of his life. The day after my dog passed last Sunday, so did the robins. I’ll write tons about Amos when I’m ready for that. Xoxo.

So nature sucked last week. Suck it nature (I’m in my “pissy” stage of grief & I don’t give a hoot). Lol. Xo
What I did before I left on this mini vaca, that I’m currently on – 4 days camp / 4 days big city trip- was plant this! It’s a dixi cup kids bird gourd!

From my record a day blog.. As we head out on a great Canadiana adventure this weekend! Xo.

just for the records ~another 365 project

G’day hosers. This Mint condition piece of classic Canadiana comedy was the soundtrack to us racking some cider, in our bathroom. Sounds Canadian, oui? These two hosers filled two sides of a record in 1981 with their drunken, uneducated, hockey, ice fishing and beer banter. The Great White North. It’s embarrassingly endearing & reminiscent of my early years, growing up in London, Ontario. When SCTV was good TV.

At least one million copies of the album were sold within North America, 350,000 of these within Canada alone which earned a triple-platinum certification from the Canadian Recording Industry Association.   The Great White North entered the RPM Canadian album charts at #3 on 12 December 1981 and rose to the #1 position the following week where it remained until 23 January 1982. Overall, RPMranked the album #40 of albums released in Canada during 1981. The Great White North peaked at…

Great Things Always Begin From Inside

Today’s photo of the three little robins reminds me of the skeksis from Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal. Remember that amazing movie!? Look at their lips? So adorable. They look bug & worm drunk.

the baby robin eggs ~ daily photography of the hatching process

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was a very fun photo experiment. I held up my iphone every day to the nest and took photos or videos. Videos are on youtube & will be published here soon. The nest was discovered on my craftroom porch end of April and now we have baby robins! I posted then about info on bird eggs hatching as I knew nothing about it. I think it takes 14 days to hatch an egg and 14 days til they take flight after hatching!

Best part? screaming out loud when 3 little heads popped up to great my phone, one morning! 

DISCLAIMER: no baby birds or nest were touched / harmed during this photo shoot.
