Bird Nest Update

Well, we couldn't resist not peeking into our little nests, so when the bird flew away for a minute, my husband got on top of the patio cover and took a couple pictures.  We have two nests.  One above each outdoor fan.  Here is a picture of our little stay at home mom and her little nest.  She sits on it all day and all night.  Look at these beautiful little eggs.







Now the second nest (if you can call it that), looks complete from below, but when my husband looked into that one......here is what we found. 






Want my explanation?  I think it got confused which nest the other eggs were in, and she needed to lay that egg fast and just plopped it out right on the wood beam.  We laughed our heads off.  The sad thing is, she has abandoned this egg all together.  She never sits on that side so I'm afraid that egg won't ever hatch.  It still makes me laugh to look at that nest though.

Happy Spring and have a great Mother's Day everyone!

The first one is a work of art! The second one, I think your explanation sounds pretty good! Keep us posted on what happens and when they hatch.

I'm so glad you were able to peek into the nest and show us pictures. I love this kind of stuff. I've been checking in on the life of a bald eagle and her babies that is being livestreamed (it's on youtube) and it's fascinating! I think one of your pictures of the eggs would look amazing framed!
