Easter Eggs

IMG_5866

 Look at what's arrived just in time for Easter. The warm spring weather has the birds extra active in my area and the nesting season is well underway. Above is a Eastern Bluebird nest in one of my pvc nest boxes. Eastern  Bluebirds normally lay between 3 - 6 eggs.

Another early season nester is the Carolina Chickadee. Those who have followed this blog may remember the chickadee nest tube I built last spring. I'm please to report that the pair of chickadees I posted about a couple months back have decided to make it their home. Carolina Chickadees normally lay between 3 - 8 eggs. That's their eggs below.

These may not be traditional Easter eggs, but their still fun to find. Have a great Easter everyone!!

Love all the eggs! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've been thinking about having my hubby build one of those PVC pipe tube nesting cavities, so I'm glad to hear they work.

Sweet eggs. I hope they all hatch and the babies all survive. I am also hoping you will be sharing photos as those little ones grow - that would be wonderful!

I have nests of eggs of all kinds sitting around my living room. For some reason, they give me great comfort!

Lovely Easter post! I've got a sweet Mockingbird that keeps changing nest locations this year. Interesting to watch.
