Another Surprise to Share!

Was out photographing a few Rose of Sharon blooms yesterday in the front yard. Kept noticing a male and female robin closeby. They were talking to me non stop. As if to warn me of something. We call these birds robin red breast. See the orange on their breast in the photo above? So I kept my eyes open and there it was. A robin nest of two eggs. These robin eggs are a gorgeous blue. Nestled in the middle of one of the Rose of Sharon bushes. A safe place for a nest hopefully. This nest is in my front yard. So now, I will be busy going back and forth checking on this nest as well as the bluebirds of happiness in the backyard. Wow, everything at once it seems. Such an exciting time once again in my yard. Fingers crossed for both nests to be successful and safe from predators.

I think birds are recommending your place to other birds. It is the best place to build a nest for sure.

@CarolDM I found a bird nest in a flower pot sometime ago. The nest was empty so I imagine the mama bird had her birds and they all flew away.

You have heard of robins gg blue? This is where it goes from. Stunning eggs. Thanks Gary. I have lost at least two nests this year with babies to predators. Part of it.
