May 3 - Two of the birds hatched today. I actually lucked out and saw the second one breaking out of its shell during the afternoon hours.

Day 10 - April 28
Here's a quick recap. I discovered the nest on April 19. The next day on April 20, I spotted the first egg. The past few days have featured no real change, as I photographed 4 eggs on April 24. So, now it's just a waiting game for the hatching of the eggs. Typically, the eggs hatch at about 2 weeks so that will be about May 4. So for now it's just wait and watch. I do spot the robin on the nest... in fact she's there right this minute. She's not a big fan of the loud lawnmower, otherwise she's pretty content to remain on the nest and doesn't scare too easily.

April 22 - This lady is more than content to just sit on her nest. I was able to get really close to grab this photo and she didn't budge. She was in some kind of statue mode. Maybe I can grab an egg photo some other time. It didn't seem right to bug her any more.

April 20 - I spotted a bird in the nest this afternoon. It was a robin. The robin flew off so I decided to take another picture to see if there were any eggs. We have an egg! Typically, a robin will lay 3 to 5 eggs and the eggs hatch in about 2 weeks. So I should see some babies by May 4-8.
April 19 - I found a fully built nest under my deck. No bird was present, but based on the shape and size of the nest, and the types of birds that are most prevalent around my yard, I guessed that it was either a robin or cardinal nest.

Once upon a time I visited a community impacted by a tornado. Once upon a time I arrived in a community just after being hit by a tornado. Once upon a time I spotted a tornado and took video footage as it hit a community. Once upon a time I was in a community when a tornado approached. I took video footage throughout the event and posted it on YouTube. Once upon a time I was in a community when a tornado approached. As I took video footage, my life hung in the balance as twigs, boards, roofing material and glass flew everywhere. I barely escaped safely and then promptly posted my harrowing experience on YouTube
