I found this nest last week when I was clearing the thick weeds out of my rose garden. There were 3 eggs, but today I only saw these 2. It's a good thing I didn't prune that bush like I thought about doing.

I think they're great.
All the good bids do, glad to see you helping them out by no disturbing the nest.

These hatched by neighbor's pond & have been making a daily pilgrimage to & from the pond to the lake using my yard as their trail.

That's a cute family picture. I should go to some geese hangouts here to see if there are young ones.

I would never disturb a nest. I just hope the cats leave them alone. I found a nest of young robins today on a Moonglow Juniper which the top half of is horizontal from the snow last winter. I've been planning on cutting it back for the last month, but it's a good thing I waited. The chicks are pretty young, so they haven't been there long. I think there might be another one in an apple tree. Lots of babies this year.
