We recently discovered a nest quite close to our back door. The robins built their home right at eye level in a yew (Taxus sp.) that is right next to the end of our path which runs from front yard to back.
It's always great to hear from an old friend after years apart. I just heard from Alia. It was wonderful to know she's been out there enjoying life since the last time I saw her, probably about 15 years ago.
