A Blue Surprise of Robin Eggs

Another happy day today. Just got back form errands. Saw a few birds flying out of the trees. I knew there were nests in the yard, but so far nothing.... until today. I climbed between the holly bushes and the house, almost on the ground, looking for a nest. And there it was. A nest full of three gorgeous robin eggs in the holly bush. I do not recommend doing this. The birds can attack in defense, or they can abandon the nest. But I was determined, as I am every year. Look at those blue eggs. They are gorgeous. And are about the size of a grape. Robin babies soon.

Thank you for your excitement. This is exactly how I felt when I found them. I try really hard to be careful. Crazy bird lady.

She was there when I checked just now. I just wanted to tell others to be very careful. Get in and out quickly.

@DocAndersen I have never seen a raven's nest. How cool. They might not be very friendly with the camera getting close.

Oh wow, they are very blue, aren't they? Do you know what colour bluebird eggs are?

Yes, this is where the phrase robin egg blue comes from. It truly is a real color. Yes, I have had bluebird eggs for over ten years in the backyard. They are a lighter blue. Hoping they return soon.

@CarolDM I'm sure there must be at least one nest here too - at least there are some busy-looking adults around - but I haven't spotted anything yet.
