    We have 3 birdhouses in our backyard, but every year, Robins decide to build a nest on top of my electric meter. Maybe because it's under an overhang, and maybe it's warm, they must think it's a primo real estate area for their families.

    Anyway, usually, every year, a storm ends up blowing this nest off the meter, and we end up with 3 or 4 broken eggs or hatchlings(?) spread out around the deck, and then the dogs find them.

    Anyway... This year, a smart Robin must have used some super glue to stick the nest to the box. We've had a lot of storms over the last month, but that thing hasn't budged.

    A group of Robins hatched and flew their way to greener pastures lately, and a new Robin (or maybe the same one?) has taken over the nest, evening making some reinforcements.

    Here are some pics.
