Robins almost ready

Some birds have learnt to coexist with people, and robins seem to be one of those species. This is a light sconce at work, under a metal awning. It's reasonably sheltered from sun, wind and rain, and the robins have decided that this is a good place to raise some babies.

I've seen 3 chicks in the nest, although only 2 are visible here. The babies are very quiet when people walk by, but they chirp up a storm when mum or dad shows up with a beak full of bugs! These chicks have most of their feathers - I suspect they'll be out on their own within the week.
