Good news!

We are expecting another baby! No, not me, silly! A baby bird!

If you remember, we were quite sad around here last week when we found out there was a nest robber among us and all three robin eggs were missing. This morning I noticed a bird fly up near our kitchen window and I remember seeing one come up pretty close yesterday as well. I was very hopeful because I know there has been a nest outside our window since moving into this house.

I quietly went out onto the patio and sure enough, there was a mama bird sitting in the nest.

As I moved closer, she flew off and I discovered that she was indeed sitting on an egg! A beautiful, fragile pink egg!

Eden will be so pleased! Anyone know what type of bird this is??

It looks like a type of dove...the best thing you can do is leave her alone so she continues to nest. Sometimes if they are checked too much then will abandon the nest or try to move the eggs.
