Odd Egg In

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.

wary eyed robinThis 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.

    • Thanks for taking the time Jude. I thought a birder out there would just know off the top of their head. I’ll look to see if she produces more. Perhaps with the white egg she may think she is done.


  1. Oh my goodness won’t it be wonderful if that third egg hatches? I wonder what kind of bird it will be? Yes I think I will call you Birdman- Savior of the Feathered Creatures. šŸ™‚


  2. I’m looking forward to updates. It really would be cool if the egg hatches. The cracks a bit of a worry but there are now many many people willing it to be a happy ending.. šŸ™‚


  3. I hope Mama Robin is as thoughtful as you are. We will all be waiting for updates!!
    btw – the colour of those 2 blue eggs is amazing. Now I know where the colour robin’s-eye-blue came from – they really are an amazing colour of blue!!


  4. Schmekles……. You know that little one is going to catch more than his share of shit around the feeder if he flies away with that name….I can hear it now….. šŸ™‚


      • I appreciate the effort!! I had to do similarly to take the chicken eggs in a recent post. Not that it was so high mind you … I’m just so darn short! šŸ™‚


  5. Dear Eggman
    I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together
    Regards, the Walrus

    PS. I hope they hatch so we can see the wonder that is your kindness transpire šŸ˜€
