Domestic Scene Appears

Spring is in the air and a mother robin (Turdus migratorius) has constructed a nest on
a wreath which is hanging on a wall under an overhang on the deck walkway. Further observation reveals four eggs. You could call the color robin's egg blue.
Nest construction shows rougher and heavier materials on the outside and finer grasses smoothed over with mud on the inside.
