Over the past two weeks we have been sharing our garage with a family of Robins. I set up the video camera to capture some of their nesting activities. We captured some cool footage, but the most bizarre has to be the following clip. Watch what the mother Robin does for her offspring.

    I’m not surprised, but I’d never seen that.

    WE mothers do all manner of things for our children.

    That’s a fantastic clip there, what a wonderful opportunity to see how these sweet little birds live..

    That’s amazing what the Mum does but so sensible, keeping the nest nice and clean!

    Have to start calling you David Attenborough now 🙂
