My herd of wild Bostons may have scared them off, even though I reassured papa robin that I would keep his kiddies safe. He did, as I mentioned, look skeptical. I saw no sign of them yesterday, and was about to post a sad commentary on my unfitness as a bird sanctuary, but then caught a cameo appearance of mama bird today. I'm guessing that she hasn't laid her eggs yet and maybe she's keeping this option open. This is creating very mixed feelings for me. I'd love to nurture nature and have baby robins here, but it is a minor nuisance to have to look out for them and be sure they are kept safe and relatively undisturbed. My Bostons can and do create quite a ruckus on occasion.
