Just wanted to share something I found today.
This is why I never get tired of nature.

Are they blue jay” Do jays lay blue eggs? Or they could be blue heron or blue crab or blue fish eggs.
Definitely robin eggs, Carl. We saw mama robin fly out of the tree. Hmm blue fish eggs–now that sounds interesting.
Gorgeous, Laura! I’d forgotten how pretty robin’s eggs were!
Glad I posted them, Wendy. The picture makes me smile every tine I see it.
They’re leftover Easter eggs from Miss Charlotte. Who’re you kiddin’?
Ah there you caught me, Dave. I was wondering who would figure it out.
Are they any good sunny side up?
Pretty much so!
I was glad Brian spied them. He’s usually pretty good at rooting those kind of things out.
They are so pretty. Thnaks for sharing.
You’re welcome, Darlene. I was so excited that we found them.
Yes Patti, they are lovely and as Melanie said, perfect.
That kind of discovery is indeed a treasure! Now the question is, will you be able to catch a pic of the babies when they arrive?
Treasure is a very good word. I’ve been thinking all day and wondering why a nest of eggs gladdens the heart. But it really does. I’m hoping to go back to get some photos of the babies so stay tuned. I wonder how long it takes robin eggs to hatch? Hmmm
We have a robin’s nest with three lovely blue eggs in our porchlight. I keep checking for hatchlings, but none yet. Yes, a genuine treasure. Please keep us posted on the progress.
Will definitely try and keep up with this. The nest is quite a distance from home but I’ll certainly be back.
Simple and perfect, Laura.
Simple and perfect, maybe that’s why they gladden the heart so.
My girlfriend down the road has a next attached to her window. On the inside of the house they have a slip of cardboard so they can lift it up and take a peek at the babies after they hatch. It is so wonderful to watch them from birth to the day they leave the nest. Really remarkable.
What a great idea!
I bet they’ll get some nice photos. Great way to watch them grow. Baby birds are so helpless. I’m hoping for a few shots of these at different intervals.
