The Robin Diaries

 Patricia Franklin

I keep a watch out my kitchen window, but have only seen the robins in the early mornings flying in and out. I am puzzled because when I walk by the nest it is empty. They have a nice big deep nest, so maybe the eggs are in the bottom where they will stay warm without the parents. Or maybe she is hunkered down inside there too. Or maybe, I am thinking, she might be one of these modern mothers who can leave the nest during the day because she designed it so she doesn’t have to be there to sit on it all the time, but can be out running around like the modern mothers of today.

I know the dove surprised me last year with two beautiful babies one morning when they were fully grown. She sat on top of the nest so I could not see them. I wonder what will happen with the robins. My biggest fear is the neighbor’s big black cat that has caught some birds in my backyard before, will come after them. Maybe Frank will have to build a fence around the bush. I don’t think that will happen because he is not going to let a hay crop grow until they hatch as he did last year. He is cutting the lawn right now, so I better get out and guard my little flock while I can.
