Robin, Falls

This robin is late.Most of the robins have fledged already, but this one is still brooding. On Columbia Place about an hour ago. Earlier this spring, I saw a robin's nest in the red light of a stoplight in Central Park.

Here's the Brooklyn Heights waterfall. The wind was blowing it all inland, and it wasn't that windy. Very humid down there, as I discovered. More photos here.

I wonder if that robin is working on her second or third brood. According to wikipedia's entry:

The American Robin begins to breed shortly after returning to its summer range. It is one of the first North American bird species to lay eggs, and normally has two to three broods per breeding season, which lasts from April to July.

It may be that you will entertained with robin fledglings throughout the summer!

Those robin's-egg-blue robin eggs are the handsomest thing in the universe, but three broods, man, that's a lotta work.
