Surprise in the Hay

One of the many joys of life out here is the surprises…sometimes, in doing routine things, you never know what you’ll find. Like last night. Hubby’s out getting the hay to feed the girls, and finds these in the hay.

Egg in hayWe don’t know what birds they’re from. We do have a whole bunch of red wing blackbirds around, and some all black song birds too. I don’t know enough about birds to know what types they are. I just like seeing them.

So pretty!

So pretty!

Eggs in hay2We just tucked some hay back around them and left them. The eggs should hatch out before we need to use that bale anyways, and we see no reason to disturb them. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi,
    A Google image search shows Red-winged Black Bird eggs and they look just like your photos. They are wonderful squawky birds.

      I love the flocks of them we have here. They’re a joy to have around. Even when dancing on the metal roof.

    cool. we have redwing blackbirds and grackles seasonally. they are mainly insect eaters and will hit up my suet feeders until it warms up enough for bugs. they leave in late fall and return early in spring. since i forgot to have jay close up the hole when he did the gutters last fall i have a mama grackle nesting in my wall for the second summer. i hear the babies when she comes home with food.
