Robin's Nest - Fine Art Print - 10x15 by Traceyhooping's Shop

We watched the robins build this nest and then, over the summer, hatch two batches of babies. I waited until autumn to rescue it from the katsura tree right outside my window. It's not as fancy as some of the nests I've seen, but I loved being able to observe the whole process from the upstairs window of my studio!
I support Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and I my home in Seattle is a WA state certified "Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary".


  1. What a fine Challenge entry for this month... I enjoyed looking thru your store as well !

    Wish you lived nearer... would love to have a beekeeper set up some hives on my land !

  2. I took a peek into your shop, it's nice.

  3. How's always a miraculous thing that a little live birdie pops out of those tiny little spaces!!

  4. So beautiful, and lucky that you got to watch the little birdies hatch and grow up! Great that you create a safe and protective environment for wildlife in your backyard!
