In the spring of 2018 I was surprised to see a nest in the joint of a support beam on my back porch.  I come and go through that door every day; I would have figured it would be too high-traffic.  But there was a nest, and then there was a bird occupying it nearly full-time -- a bird who got angry and actually glared at me if I tried to take a look.  But occasionally I was able to see the chicks that resulted.

I took this picture of the robin family in May 2018, standing on a stepstool at my back door and holding my (phone) camera out and up, basically shooting blind.
