That’s what Bob said when he saw Octavia (our new neighbor here at our apartment complex) making this on our very own balcony! We feel so honored!

Octavia is a precious little Robin who worked for days non-stop to build this great little nest, and we think her eggs will hatch sometime in mid-May. The little birds will fly away a few weeks later all by themselves! She will probably lay some more eggs this summer, but she will most likely use a different nest. Why did she choose our balcony when there are several excellent nesting trees so very close by? Who knows? I’m just glad she and her babies will be gone by June, because that is when we are set to close on our very first house!
