Camera Critters (#56)


Last Sunday I looked out the back door and saw a robin perched on one of Jeffrey’s stakes.  These are the stakes he put out back to measure out where the patio is going to go.

Then he jumped off the stake and attempted to take the string that was tied to it.

He actually tried for quite a while, but by the time I thought about getting some video, he gave up and flew away.  He came back and tried again several times, though.  Here he is trying another string:

Those strings may be loose, but they are not going anywhere.  Poor robin.  I guess he’ll have to find nest building materials somewhere else – and these looked so promising.

Camera Critters is a fun weekend meme hosted by Misty Dawn.Visit the Camera Critters headquarters and join in. There are all kinds of great critters to see!


  1. That is just darling! He either needed nesting material or he's building a robin sized kite:)

  2. Fun photos! Guess he thought a nest would be nice!!!

  3. Great photos! And love the video, lol. That was one determined bird!

  4. Funny that he tried so hard to get the string. Poor little guy.
