The robins nest around the house every year, but this time they are on a special spot, like on my hiking shoes next to the house entrance.

They started building the nest at the beginning of May, they laid four eggs in four days and were sitting on them for about 2 weeks before the first one hatched. The fourth one didn’t make it and we gave it to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and they were quite happy to receive this gift.

I was watching how they raised the young fellows, how the young ones were growing and how mum and dad worked together to still their hunger and to keep the nest clean from poop. I called them Piep, Matz, and Little Mr. Crumble.

On the picture you see Matz and Little Mr. Crumble still enjoying “Hotel Mum”, while Piep made the final jump already, a jump with which innocence was forever lost.
