First Robin Brood Hatched

Robin Egg

Robins are double or even triple brooded. There are usually 4 eggs (range 3 to 5) and incubation is for a modest 11 to 14 days. The young leave the nest at 14 to 16 days and can find their own food by 28 days.

The opened egg on the bank of the Elbow River by Curly Creek confirms the first brood has hatched. I should see the young in a few weeks.
