I was googling to see how long it takes for robin's eggs to hatch. Answer: about 14 days. And then another 14 days or so to grow their feathers and fly away. I found this amazing site, where a woman posted daily photos of a robin's nest with three eggs outside her window, and took notes as they hatched, and were fed, and grew feathers, and flew off. Very cool pics: check it out here.
PS: I don't know why this robin's nest outside our living room window has me so excited. It's kinda childlike. But I check it out several times a day. And I keep a keen eye out for those god-damn crows.
PPS: I promise I won't write a poem about it. There are already enough bird nest poems in the world.
