Happy Friday to you! I'm headed out this morning to hit the garage sale trail; hoping to find some good treasures. Before I go, I wanted to check with my blogging buddies and especially those who are bird lovers. This is the nest that is in my daughter's bbq; two of the five babies didn't make it. Because I love watching birds and identifying them, it has driven me crazy trying to figure what bird these are. Initially, I thought they were Robins-because the eggs were Robin blue; silly me! I didn't realize just how many birds have blue eggs. So my daughter said no they aren't Robins, but a smaller bird(in order to get inside the back of the bbq)and we thought maybe Starlings. I'm still not sure; she has seen a black & brown bird near the area, smaller than a Robin. They are definitely bigger than the Sparrows I had several years ago. So if you recognize what type of bird these little ones are, please do tell. Whatever they are, they sure are cute!
