A couple of weeks ago I noticed that a bird was building a nest in my jackmanii clematis. She chose a horrible place to put her nest (in my opinion). It is located right where everyone has to walk when coming and going from the house and I figured she would abandon this idea when she realized how much traffic there is constantly passing within a couple of feet of her nest. I checked about a week later and found there was 2 eggs. The next day there was 3. Today she has 4 eggs.
|The nest is right in the center of the picture and surrounded with leaves.|
|When I stand on tiptoes I can see the eggs.|
|I'm glad it was a Robin that chose this spot for her nest. Their eggs just happen to be my favorite color. Her nest will soon be surrounded with beautiful flowers!|
