Look what we found!


My hubby found this nest in our forsythia bushes
and the eggs are so beautiful!

Of course my book is packed in a box
somewhere so I can't identify them yet! lol

I just had to make a photo collage!

Have a beautiful Saturday!

Those eggs really are pretty...hope that you find out what kind they are. Now you'll have fun with your little bird family for a while.

What a great find with the book and at such a neat time, finding the nest and eggs.
Such fun and you might get to see the birds hatch out.

Hi Diane,
What a treasure to find in the bush. It is beautiful too and the eggs are so pretty. Mother nature at her best. I love nests and enjoy painting them as well.

Thank you for sharing such a special part of nature.

Thank you for stopping by to visit the home tour of my friend. Your kind comments to her are very appreciated.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I loooove old books tooooo!

OH those egglings! Just look at them, they look like marble! So shiny!

YOu are a woman after mine own heart with these books and eggs! Kindred gals, we are, we are ;) xoxo

ps: My Granny loved the mice, so I gave her one. She acted like I was introducing her to Tom Selleck, circa 1985. Funny, how our priorities change. It's all about your fab mice these days!! ;)

Isn't that fun when you make that kind of discovery in your yard. Can't wait to see what hatches.

They might be Northern Cardinal Eggs - Nests of the Northern Cardinal are built by the female and are found in shrubs or vine tangle made of twigs usually 4-6 ft up. Clutches usually are from 2 to 5 eggs.

Like your Arkansas cousin would know, but I LIVE on the Internet! Love the photos!
