So cute. And creepy.

The eggs in the nest on the back fence have started to hatch. This little guy is really cute, but baby birds sort of gross me out too. It's a love hate thing.

I'm impatiently waiting for his brothers and sisters to come out too. I'm pretty fascinated by watching these robins this spring.

I know what you mean. We had a nest awhile back and they were pretty creepy looking. Oh well, at least their mommies love them.

Wow! So it's true. The eggs are real, and yes they are creepy on first day because they still lack feathers. Hope the others will hatch soon.

How very lucky to have a nest of babies in your garden.

baby birds are so ugly but I love when I'm lucky enough to have a bird build a nest close enough for me to peep in once in awhile. It takes awhile before I can look at a baby bird and say, "awwwwww!". They have to reach a fluffy/non-awkward stage first.

Wow that's amazing that they laid in full view like that. Must be amazing to watch, you're so lucky!
