Awwwww – what a bird brain!

We’ve been noticing a bird flying to and from a wreath we have hanging outside by our back door. Since a silly bird made a nest in there last year I figured that might be the case again this year. It’s really not a good place to make a nest. That door is opening and closing all day long! My son will come home with his posse, say six teenage boys, and I swear they come in one at a time – each boy will open and close that door – ha ha! That momma bird isn’t getting much peace. So I got out my stool and took this picture. Why do you think that one egg is balancing on the edge? Is it a dud? Should I nudge it into the nest with a twig or something? I just don’t know. I tend to lean towards letting nature take it’s course, but it wouldn’t take much persuading to get me to nudge it back into the nest –ha ha!

I'm glad that the mama bird took your decission for you. They seem to know just when the eggs aren't good. My chickens and ducks do it too.
I hope you have a great weekend with your family. Take care.
