Recently, while walking Pumpkin I found a bird egg that was just resting on the grass, nowhere near a tree. I noticed a hairline crack, but it appeared viable, with no liquid leaking. I cupped it gently and upon arriving home I placed it in a nest that I found just a day earlier.
This is the same robin I posted yesterday, giving me just one wary eye. After she took off for a bit, I quickly climbed up a ladder and grabbed this picture.
Aha! Two gorgeous blue eggs and the white one I placed in the nest. If the odd egg hatches I will be thrilled to death. I may then be known as the man who saves birds. Do you think she will continue to lay eggs? How long do they incubate?
This dog of mine, sweet Pumpkin, fills me with joy and love. She recently had dental surgery and I feared for her loneliness waking up in a kennel, without Judy or I in sight. When we went to pick her up the Vet relayed what a sweet dog she is and how upon waking up, she looked around and started to wag her tail. She will be nine on Halloween.
