We have one that's built a nest on our cable wire. They've done it before and the eggs fell out and broke, then the next year my nan knocked it down immediately when they started constructing it in hopes that they would find a new place to make one before it was too late. They've done it again this year and so far we left it there but it's almost guaranteed that either the eggs or the whole nest is going to fall off.

My mom has some fraking amazing birds nest on top of her propane tank... bright blue eggs with bright red baby birds hatching out...

Image

I'm so shocked that this is happening to her because my whole life she has been a bird fanatic... she goes birdwatching with a big 'ol DSLR equipped with a giant lens kind of fanatic... so I just feel like she must have set this up! :P The chances that the birds would pick her?!

Bird lotto! Luck! That is a great photo!

I am really into 'wild' birds now...I guess I can be labeled as a crazy cat-bird lady!

Bright blue are probably American Robins but could be something else too.

Robin eggs aren't mottled like that. Could be dirty robin eggs, i suppose, but more likely a different bird. House Finch, perhaps?
