Mama Robin, scolding me for coming so near. She’s a protective matriarch, this one.
Considering she made her home on the porch light, a mere foot from the patio door of our kitchen, I didn’t think she really had a right to be quite so angry with me. I tried to be understanding though…
…since she has two precious reasons for not wanting to share the deck with us.
