A red-breasted robin has hatched her eggs in a bush outside of the White House. Associated Press photographer Ron Edmonds first spotted the bird next to the entrance of the press briefing room. He soon realized she was caring for a nest full of blue eggs about to hatch.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

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.
