Motherhood Instincts

Walking along one of the remote trails, I was attacked by a robin, seemingly for no apparent reason! Flapping about my head and wildly vocalizing, she was making it clear that I needed to vacate the area or else.

I moved away a bit and looked about, and quickly realized why she was so agitated:

Her nest was a mere foot away from the trail and I had (inadvertently) come too close. I just had to quickly snap a couple photos, then kept moving, so as to allow momma bird to return to her eggs. Pure instinct on her part....and mine.
Happy Mother's Day!
