    Here are a series of photos I took over the course of 16 days showing the growth and I guess survival of a batch of Robin eggs. I hope you all enjoy them.

    They are pretty aren't they. The Robin's nest was in a Weeping Normandy Spruce in my front yard. Do you have Robins in your neck of the woods?

    Yes apparently a quick Google and we do :) But I would have called them a finch - I see lots of little colourful birds flying around in the bushland. Sometimes I just stop and stand quietly down the back and wait until they inevitably fly around near me - they're hard to get a good picture of because they move too fast and move constantly.

    Mikie would they be Robin Red Breasts? The kind one sees on Christmas cards?

    Such pretty blue eggs.

    Yes, the red breasted Robin or the North American Robin. They do appear on Christmas cards due to the face they appear in the spring making them a symbol of new life.
