Bird Eggs

30 Apr

As I was checking my fields, I flushed up lots of birds as I was riding through.

I see lots of these nests, these are the Kildeers I posted about previously.

These are Mourning Dove eggs. The parents get up and fly a little ways then give me the old broken wing routine.

I don’t know what this nest holds, I didn’t see the adult fly away. Isn’t the egg a lovely shade of blue? I wonder if that is eggshell blue? It should be in my opinion. And look how nice and comfy and perfectly shaped that nest is. If I was sitting at my workbench with a pile of straw, a bottle of Elmers glue, and a steel ball to use for a mold I don’t think I could make a nest that nice.

    Is it some sort of bluebird’s egg?

      No, the egg is too large and bluebirds don’t nest on the ground. I remember exactly where this nest is located and I’ll try to get a look at them tomorrow.

    Caryn, I googled it and you may be right, but I have never noticed robin nests on the ground before.

        I love that about your blog. I get to see things I’ve never seen, and most people don’t. God’s World is amazing, and your pictures show that. Who else could paint an egg in so many beautiful ways…especially that blue one. I find it fascinating. Thank you for sharing it with us!
