Robin Nesting at Pacific Grove, California

On June 24,1941, the nest of a Robin (Turdus migratorius) containing three eggs was found in Pacific Grove, Monterey County, California. The nest was built against the trunk of a Monterey pine, about twenty feet above the ground. Its support was concealed by the mass of nesting material, but presumably it rested on a short dead stub of a branch, as there were many such stubs along the trunk. One adult was singing near by; another was on the nest in an attitude of incubation. So far as I am aware this constitutes the first breeding record for the Monterey Peninsula.
