The Joys of Spring

Three days ago I saw a robin wandering around the garden. It was going about its own business, picking up bits of grass and flying off when its beak was full. Then it would return, gather another beak full, and fly off again. Turns out, it was making its nest on the side of the house. This morning, I went outside and saw the nest perched on one of the downspouts. The photograph is about fifteen minutes old. Looks like I'm gonna get to see and hear baby robins in the near future. I feel so lucky.
