I looked out my kitchen window this morning and saw a robin gathering nesting material. His beak was full of dry grasses. I was told it is the male that builds the nest. I like that idea. The female decides if it is up to snuff. LOL So I remembered the photos I shot from the top of a ladder of a nest from the first day I saw the female sitting on the nest everyday until the little ones fledged and flew off. Enjoy!
