mama robin didn't think about the setting sun when she picked out a place for her nest
daddy robin just built where he was told
the poor babies were cooking ... literally ... when i peeked at them this afternoon
i moved the cushion off the chair and around to block the sun
but needed to find a better alternative
so moved the pepper plants to the front stoop to act as a sun shade until i can think of a better idea
mama seemed to appreciate my efforts, she came and sat by me in the tree as i was trying to catch a photo of hummingbirds, and as i talked to her, she occasionally chattered back.
and the babies were happy too
