  • Why does the mother wiggle back and forth as she starts incubating?
  • Why don't the eggs break under her?
  • Why is the mother's mouth open in the second video clip?
  • Why doesn't she take a nap since she's stuck in one position anyway?
  • What do you think made the mother robin choose this nesting spot, on a ladder inside a partly-finished geodesic dome, for her nest site?
