Eggs and Nests

Happy first day of spring!

Happy first day of spring! The birds are twitterpating, or have twitterpated, and are laying their first clutches of the season.

Birds build nests of varying shapes, sizes, and materials. They lay eggs that are distinct to their species and also vary within species. Check out these beautiful nests and eggs that I photographed.

Which is your favorite?

Stay tuned for more on nests, eggs, and nestlings!
