76/365 A face only a mother could love

I caught a glimpse of four-legged baby wildlife on Wednesday, so it's appropriate that I represent a winged species next.

Ugly, featherless, nothing-but-open-mouths robins.

As Mom appropriately put it, "A face only a mother could love."

Mama robin picked a great place for her nest. It's situated on the top of a tall wooden privacy fence, tucked up under the eave of a garage, protected from the elements. And that fact alone was excellent this week when some areas of town were pounded by the season's first real hail storm.

I hope they make it and grow into attractive, fully feathered robins.
