When my Mam and Dad arrived last Wednesday (March 4th) they found this bird egg on my path. They picked it up to show me.
We think another bird might have swiped it from a nearby nest then dropped it. Either that or it fell out of the nest some birds have up near the roof. I know there are birds nesting up there.
Either way it was found in the middle of our path.
I wonder if it broke when it fell or got stepped on and broke that way.
Anyway, Dad asked if I was going to keep it and start a nature collection, since there's no way it will hatch now. I told him no, but before Mam could throw it away I asked if someone would take a photo of it for me to post on my blog.
No particular reason, I just wanted to be able to show photos when I mentioned the egg.
Mam took the photos for me Wednesday afternoon, and Kelly got them on the PC and labeled for me on Friday, but I decided to leave posting them until today. I figured I'd leave it for a day when I don't have a blog theme planned. Especially since a lot of people have a lot going on at the moment and don't have time to read even one post a day sometimes, let alone two.
While Mam had the camera out to take the photos of the egg I asked her to take a photo of the little house shaped bird feeder I got a couple of weeks ago. So, she waited for a gap in the rain, sleet and snow, then she went out and took the photo for me.
And here it is.
It's been put up on the side of our sheds. Well, technically on the side of Kelly's shed, because mine is quite close to the back door and I thought the birds might prefer it a bit further away from the back door really.
Mam also took a photo of the new seed dispenser type of feeder I got. I brought this one on Wednesday, so it had only just been put up when these photos were taken.
OK, well that's all I wanted to post about today.
Enjoy whatever's left of your day! :)
