Messy Bird Returns To Tappan House

   Last spring, I blogged about a robin the made a rather messy nest over our front door.  For whatever reason, no eggs were ever laid there, and I finally removed it.  This spring, another messy nest appeared in the wisteria vine over our back door, and this time the robin laid at least two eggs, which have since hatched.  Our house faces a street with no parking, and our driveway and garage are in the back, so we almost never use the front door.  The back door is therefore in pretty regular use, and for the last couple of weeks, every time we go out, the mother robin flies off the nest, screaming abuse at us.  Recently, two heads have appeared above the side of the nest.  One is easily seen in the photograph, and the other is to the left and a little lower, with its mouth open.  Like any kids, these two are always hungry, and keep their mom busy.
