Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. On Friday, we told you about a great horned owl making its home in a Home Depot in Arkansas. Now, a red-breasted robin has hatched her eggs in a bush outside the White House.

Associated Press photographer Ron Edmonds first spotted the bird next to the entrance to the press briefing room. He soon realized she was caring for a nest full of blue eggs about to hatch. No word yet on whether Bo has discovered the birds.

It's MORNING EDITION.
