5 eggs in the nest

Robins lay only one egg per day, usually stop at four, finishing when the clutch feels right for sitting. When there are more than 5 eggs it usually means another robin has visited that nest..Thank you Janine V. of West Sacramento for sharing her photo of mother nature at work in her backyard.
