Robin's Nest Time Lapse - 2 of 3 Eggs Hatched Today
This is a Robin's Nest that two persistent Robins built on my front porch no matter how much I tried to discourage them. So I just accepted that I was going to lose this battle and I set up a webcam so that I could watch them and make a time lapse of them caring for their babies and eventually to watch the babies leave the nest.
Today 2 of the 3 eggs hatched... they hatched underneath the mother Robin so you can't actually see them hatching, but you can see them right after. The first one hatched right at dawn, and the second hatched mid-morning. #3 is still inside the egg.
