robins hatched

admin No Comments

The eggs have hatched !!!

BUT…

I can’t get a decent look  :/ and I have no idea how many there are. my guess is 3 .

I did get a peak of one of the babies poking it’s beak out crying for food while the mom was away but as soon as the mom is back and I am watching she covers the babies. she doesn’t even want to feed them if I am watching.

both mom and dad are busy finding food pretty much all day long .

empty the tanks

admin No Comments

Today  is empty the tanks day.

If you don’t live near a marine park or a protest I ask that you share on social media the importance of this event.

It’s time to end the slavery of these amazing animals.  They belong in the ocean. Help spread the word to those who are blinded by the advertisements from these places. Help educate those who are still buying tickets. Please remember how powerful each one of us is, by simply voting with our money; we can put an end to these parks and empty the tanks.

Spread the message !

End captivity

a robin story continues

So I mentioned here that I have a robin family who decided to set up right by my window in an evergreen tree

male robin

well it seems that the mommy robin has had her eggs sometime in the last 24 hours

female on nest

I have not had a chance to see how many exactly, but I got a glimpse and can see that there are indeed eggs in there now

this is a really bad picture but you can see the light blue egg

robin egg

A clutch consists of three to five light blue eggs, and is incubated by the female alone. The eggs hatch after 14 days,”  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_robin) 

so now we wait 2 weeks 🙂

So last year I had the cutest sparrow come visit me at my window, you can find the post here

This spring I just noticed today that I have a american robin … or rather a robin family with a nest right by my window…

robin

s/he keeps looking inside and right at me 🙂

robin

These are not the best pictures as I had the screen up … but I have removed the screen and removed the curtain and hope to catch some amazing shots of the family, and hoping they have eggs and babies soon 🙂

robin nest

I am pretty sure this is the female … she has a muddy beak and seems to be building the nest still

of course I will be taking advantage of this situation by making a homeschooling project 🙂

robin

I am pretty certain this is the male … he is the one always keeping an eye on me 🙂
