Ok well I guess these guys aren't really your typical house guests and technically they would be more like outside guests. A couple weeks ago we were working on the side of the house and we noticed a little bird has made her nest on the side of our house. It was kind of funny because for the longest time we couldn't really figure out why this silly bird kept dive bombing our heads, but then we saw her nest.
|Aren't they just so pretty.|
I did some reasearch to try and figure out what type of bird eggs these guys are only to realize that this type of egg coloring seems to be very common. So I'm making an educated guess and saying that these eggs belong to a Black-capped Chickadee, which is kind of the most amazing name!
We know the bird trying to get use to leave the nest area was pretty tiny, and these guys do live in our neck of the woods, so I think it's a pretty logical conclusion. I think the little babies should be all hatched pretty soon, so hopefully we will be able to take a little look at them without making the mama too unhappy. Maybe if we leave some bird seed up there for her all will be forgiven.
I love finding bird eggs particularly if I can watch the little babies grow up. When I was little there used to always be a hummingbird nest right next to our front door, and I used to sit staring at it for hours especially after the egg hatched. I was kind of a weird kid, I also loved just staring up into trees for hours too. I actually ended up getting my corneas scratched by bark three separate times during these long examinations of the trees. I think by the third hospital visit my mom had enough of my tree fascination, haha!
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. I'm enjoying a lazy one full of Netflix.
