Nesting robins!

It's been such a long time since I posted something here. Since I haven't been on here for a while I thought I could post something telling you about the robins we have nesting.
We first noticed the nest when we came back from vacation. We put up a robin/swallow nesting shelf last year. Nothing came but then a year later we discovered a robin sitting on her newly laid eggs. It took about 14 days for the eggs to hatch. It was obvious when the eggs hatched when the adults started coming in with beak-fulls of worms.
Now we see the parents coming in every ten minutes with bunches of worms. When they come in you can see the baby birds stick their heads up and open their big orange mouths.
Here are the progressive pictures taken of the family.

Lovely! Is it okay if I post a link to this on backyard bird shop's facebook page? I'd love to have people see the photos.

Nice shots. We had a robin's nest, but I couldn't see into it- it was too high!
