Troublemaker

“The doves will try to kill the baby robins,” the neighbor warned us when we told her about the nest.

She was right.

For the last few days there have been countless battles waged against the window above the robin’s nest in the flowerbox. Every couple of hours it seems, I hear squawking and the fluttering of angry wings. The eggs haven’t even hatched yet and she’s defending her babies with all she’s got against the onslaught of collared dove attacks.

There are quite a few who live across the street in the neighbor’s pine trees. This morning one of the troublemakers landed in our pine tree where the little gold finch had posed for me a couple of days ago and I got some great shots of him.

Too bad it was with the camera! 🙂
