On the Nest

It’s Spring, and this Robin is on the nest of her choosing atop a rain drain pipe connector under the roof of a human house. Although birds may seem to build nests in fragile-looking locations, they are constant maintainers and guardians of their chosen territories, so few of their houses fall victim to wind and weather conditions.

This Mother-to-be built her nest deep below, nearly completely around the pipe, to support the actual small birthing area above where she will hatch her eggs.
