A robin’s nest on our spruce

I was hanging out on our front porch tonight when I noticed dried grass strewn on branches of our Fat Albert spruce. From a few feet away, it looked to me like the branches were drying up.

I walked up to the tree and upon closer inspection, I found a nest cradled between the branches. I saw a robin on the spruce as we were backing out of the driveway this morning but had no idea it had already made it home! We just got the spruce a month ago. Well, I’m glad it found a home right in my front porch! Looking forward to observing future activity in the nest. It’ll make for an interesting photo shoot when the chicks come.
