The Birds and the Birds

Recently, a Robin who I have named Nico (if you know why, prepare to be friend-ed) built a nest on our front porch. Realizing what could happen, I dug out an old webcam and rigged it to the porch.

Outside of impressing my Facebook friends, this has become a source of delight for my family. Getting up in the morning and powering up the webcam to get some photos and videos is proving to be a lot of fun.
Now, I am not one to fall for those “cute animal videos” that are all the rage on youtube. I’ll admit to finding some of them interesting, but I don’t seek them out. Still, I have come to think of Nico as a part of my family. I’m not sure what else to say about this. I just felt like sharing this bit of news.
