Mother's Day in the Honeysuckle

Wayne Upchurch

One of my regular detours when I gather the mail takes me within a couple of yards of this nest, though I didn't Know it, 'til this week. I only discovered it when I happened to notice the orange of the robin's plumage as I turned. She was sitting on the chicks, protecting them and remaining almost perfectly still. I got this photo on the second day I walked down to check on them.
I do believe this is the female, as they are a bit paler than the males.
