Caught in the act

Today we caught the mother robin in the act of laying egg #2.  If you read yesterday's post, you'll recall that robins typically lay one egg per day over a period of four days.  Our mother robin is right on schedule.  This morning, we walked out to the nest shortly before noon, and the mother robin was sitting in the nest, looking very satisfied after a morning of dining on worms.

We decided to give the mother robin some privacy, but the next time we checked the nest, there were two eggs.
