This robin built a nest right outside one of our windows out on the pergola over the patio. Shot handheld with the SP570 through tinted glass. I could NOT persuade her to turn around. Sorry. Hopefully, we'll have some shots of robin chicks to look at in the near future.

Last year I had a robin build her nest right below my window. 2 nice little blue eggs. I happened to be looking out the window a chipmunk made his way up the bush, to nest and ate the eggs. I was not a happy bird watcher.

I have a marauding raccoon, squirrels, starlings and grackles. All of which could be bad.

A fine shot, especially considering how much you had to shoot through to get a good sharp picture of the bird! Looking forward to seeing the family progress through your talented eyes!

PS - sorry to have missed seeing you in your visit to TN - hope it was a great trip, and will look forward to seeing the pictures you took!
