Good afternoon everyone. This is a big maple in the front part of my garden and right behind my swing.
As you will notice in the crotch of that tree there is a birds nest. It is a new nest this yr and I thought it looked like a robins nest.
It is only about 3-4 ft off the ground. Thought it was pretty low and rather unprotected from predators but I didn't build it so I will just have to keep an eye out for trouble.
I was working on that hill in front of it the other day when I spotted a robin sitting on the nest.
I tried to be careful not to disturb it but she did fly off. Well I had to check it out to see if there were any eggs in it.
Lo and behold there was one lone blue egg. Hmm I was thinking I thought there would be 4 or at least 3. They always show that many in pictures,
Well I continued to work planting some holly's on the hill when I noticed Mama bird back on the nest.
Of course with me going back and forth. She flew off again. I decided to look in there again and while there wasn't 3 or 4 there was another one.
I learned something about nature and birds because I guess I had the assumption they laid them all at one time.
Not true apparently. I haven't checked to see if there is anymore. YET!!!
Probably will tomorrow when I am working outside in that area. It is pretty cool having her so close. Hope they hatch and won't be killed by a cat or a hawk or any other kind of predator.
SPRING HAS INDEED SPRUNG IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS.
