School Assignment...with a little help from God

Mama Bird...she usually flies over to a nearby tree if we get to close...and she scolds us soundly!
Three beautiful eggs... During the second semester of school, we have been studying about birds and insects. Our science book gives lots of good ideas for observing and watching birds. We have been so busy that we hadn't been able to accomplish many of the experiements and projects...However, we had a little help. The kids had been playing outside and left some string laying day we noticed that the string had been wrapped around our house light by the garage. Several days later,we had a birds nest. The mother robin has offered the kids many opportunities to watch nest building and egg laying/brooding. We are anxiously awaiting the hatching of the eggs. Before our studies this year,we had never paid much attention...and now we are avid bird watchers.
We saw this guy at the ballpark tonight...he was singing very loudly(and had a beautiful song)... we are checking out our field guide until we find out the type of bird he is...any guesses?
