Robin's egg blue

So what's going on up in the nest above the garden bend/trellis?  Let's take a look...

Ok, so maybe it's not the easiest nest to sneak a peek - trying to stand on the bench, push away the honeysuckle, and angle the phone for a picture...

Ah ha!  And now you know where the name "robin's egg blue" comes from!  What a pretty color!

Meanwhile, I'm getting a bit of gruff from the robin, who was sitting up in the river birch just off to the side.  She was NOT happy...but then again, she often gets riled up if I'm anywhere near the bench, and it's not like I'm going to avoid the back corner of the yard for the next month or two.
