We are all very excited in my house. Yesterday, we discovered a Killdeer nesting alongside the road across from our driveway. She has 4 eggs. It took me a bit of research to discover what kind of bird it was.



See how close to the road she is? I don't have a close-up, the zoom isn't working. We put up signs this morning so people would be careful around the nest. Hopefully my neighbor (who's only there on weekends) won't mind.

We also found a nest in the tree in our front yard. There were no eggs and we didn't know what kind of bird had made the nest. Well, this morning, I saw the bird and had an idea of what it may be (I know next to nothing about birds). When she flew off, I grabbed the step stool and the camera to see if I could get a picture of inside the nest (I'm too short to see in it) sure enough, I got the picture and it was exactly what I was expecting.



A beautiful Robin egg

Last year we had a pair of House Finches build 2 seperate nests in my hanging planters on my front porch. Shortly after the first eggs hatched, they built the nest in the 2nd planter and we had another set of eggs from the same pair. It was pretty cool. I haven't put the planters out yet this year, but hopefully they'll return. The kids really enjoyed watching the birds from the front window. The male Finch was quite chatty and fun to watch as well.

Dori, I can't get that close to this one. She starts hollering when we get within about 15 feet.

There are some great pictures here. Thank you for posting them. I look forward to seeing more.

We have a bird feeder in the front yard. We mainly get Grackles at it and they seem to chase off the other birds. They also eat the food we put out for the dogs in the back.

My new digital camera has a good zoom feature. I know this because my 9 yr old great nephew showed me how to do it. :D He took photos inside of a large lego star wars thing that he built. oops off topic. Maybe the lego set had a bird in it.
My new digital camera HAD a great zoom feature...until my children got ahold of it. I'm not sure which one it was. I'm being told it was Not Me or I Don't Know <sigh> those two do everything...Monsters.

If he's putting birds in his Lego creations, you might have some issues with him later ;D
