Last Thursday on Craig Street I noticed two women taking cellphone pictures of the underside of Kiva Han’s awning.
When I found out what they were looking at, I took a picture too.
This is a very bad photo from my cellphone but if you look closely inside the red circle you’ll see two baby robins, almost old enough to fly. Both are standing tall with their necks stretched up and their beaks open.
It was hot that day and it must have been very hot under the awning. They were panting.
Interestingly, their nest is only a few yards from the traffic signals where the “Don’t Walk” robin had a family last year.
I wonder if this nest is hers. I wouldn’t be surprised.
