For the birds

I've found 2 Robin nests in our yard this year!  Here's one that's right at eye level!  Whenever mothering gets tough, I just think about how hard it must be to sit on a nest like that in all sorts of weather!!

We also have lots of quail nests hidden in the fields around our house.  Here's a nest we found about a month ago.  There has been a bird on it ever since, but yesterday, I saw this!
I'm hoping to see some baby birds soon!!


  1. Wow.... I knew by the eye... it was a robin!!! Just something about how they look at ya.

    Baby quail are so CUTE!!!!

  2. Quails make such pretty eggs (as do Robins)but I love the homey nature of their eggs. :)
