Robin's Nest

The robin eggs have hatched! It takes only 12 to 14 days for robin eggs to hatch, so here's what we see now when we climb up the ladder and peak into the nest with the camera. There they are, three baby robins.
 Here's Father Robin perched in the tree near the deck.
Mother Robin, a little higher in that same tree is not far away.
They built their nest on top of the light just outside the sliding doors leading from the dining room to the back deck.
We've temporarily stopped using that sliding door so as not to disturb the robin family as they raise their little ones. As if a regular fixture on the deck now, we've left this ladder there to make it easier for us to periodically climb up to see what's going on in there.
Won't it be fun to watch as these baby robins learn to fly?
