Robins May 18 2012

The four robin eggs have hatched, and four fuzz-balls with beaks have emerged. My wife exhibits more and more ornithological lore every day, as if she were channeling John James Audubon. I look at her with surprise. The pansies in whose midst the nest is situated need water, but this is not the time to intrude. Robins have been known to attack Nosey-Parkers with their beaks, and beaks are lethal if you give them a hundred meters of clearance to get up a head of steam.
