Build a little bird house in your soul...

As I bent to pick up the gas can to fill the mower something flew over my shoulder close enough to ruffle my hair.

I looked to my right and saw this:



Our pool all packed up from the summer...and a little brown bird has made a nest and filled it with 5 or 6 eggs.



Any idea what kind of bird lays white eggs with pink/red speckles?

Kestrels do, but they don't generally build nests. Possibly a house wren (or any other kind of wren), tufted titmouse (stop that giggling!), or a nuthatch.

Either way you look at it, they're gonna be goofy looking (downright hideous) for about a week or so and then they're gonna be cute as hell.

We documented our robin eggs from laying to when they flew the nest. It was great for the kids. You can check out the album here if you're interested. I hope she comes back and lays another set of eggs this year.
