This is the house the robins built

Not a lot more than a bunch of grass and mud, but it looks as though it was toasty warm and dry. Good enough at least for a hard-working pair of robins to raise a family.

Even though they've vacated the nest (and we've taken it down so we could reclaim the gazebo), two of the babies are hanging around the yard.

They're still learning how to navigate, so occasionally we'll hear a thump as one of them bumps into the window.

When they do that, I like to think they're just saying hello before they fly off to wherever they'll build their own nests.
