Two days ago, on a birding walk near home, I discovered an American Robin building a nest. It is in plain sight, eye-level, a reasonable distance from where one might place a chair and camera with telephone lens. Taken today (Wednesday, May 2), these photos show the incomplete nest, the bird gathering wet grass as building material, the bird shaping the nest by pushing itself (flexed wings and tail) into the nest to give it shape, and finally bringing mud to finish the job.
