RobinCam 2021 is up and running.
There are 3 eggs in the nest. Let’s hope things go better this year. This nest is about 3 feet above the ground in a crevasse in large silver maple in my front yard. I noticed it while mowing the lawn yesterday. I just needed to move a WCO already mounted in the tree.
Last year, there was a nest in a flowering crab apple tree. But a couple of days after the 3rd egg was laid, the started to disappear and the nest was abandoned.
I was going to put one on a nest I have near a gutter but it’s about 25 ft up and very hard to position a camera for. So instead I might focus on the Cardinals that are attempting to build a nest in a tree by my front door
Nature is tough. My Turkey friend at the golf course had 14 chicks with her 12 days ago, now she only has two left. I saw a crazy fox catch 4 of the chicks last Thursday morning even as the mom was beating the fox with her wings.
