Photo by Larry D. Simon - Larry D. Simon of Ridgway has photographed a robin's nest from the time the eggs are laid all the way through the fledglings leaving the nest, but says this is the first time he has ever seen an expectant robin. According to Larry, robins have two broods a year, and the bird above appears to be expecting quintuplets.
