      We are always seeing young birds revisit the empty nest. We have woodpeckers who nest in our Palm tree trunk, and the kids will come back around sun set and stay the night.

      I will have to pay more attention to the robins in our area and see if the littles come back to the nest! This year Momma Robin built a nest in our cottonwood but it promptly fell out! There wasn't an egg in it but I am not certain she rebuilt the nest.

      Thank you! Another drawing just laying around waiting for years to be painted. One more painting done, and a little bird stays safe in the nest!
