nesting






This nest of eggs looks almost real doesn't it?  The little twigs even have buds on them and one egg appears to be cracked as if the tiny
bird is trying to get out to see the world.


Not yet.
It's still winter.
But I expect some birds are starting to think about nesting very soon.




Another almost real looking nest.   It's faux too.




This one is the real deal.

Real egg parts too.

I like to gather nests that have been blown from the trees in our yard.  But, I don't like finding the broken eggs lying on the ground under trees.  That means a squirrel or larger bird has been around.





Another found nest still attached to the branches.



We are awaiting the arrival of spring weather here in the northeast and the spring birds that will arrive with it.  Soon.

I'm linking with Mary for 



Please join me and see some other beautiful mosaics.

I wish you a delightful week with the first day of Spring arriving on Wednesday.   It may not be spring weather but there is hope.


Blessings,

Pamela

  1. I love the photos of the eggs and nests. The birds are busy in the birdhouses and the robins are checking out the evergreen trees, hopefully it won't be long now till we hear the chirping of little baby birds.

  3. Your faux nests are realistic looking Pamela. I see quite a few egg shells on the ground in spring on my walks, it's a shame that the predators steal so many.

  4. Brrrrrrr...it is brrrrrrisk! I can't believe that I agreed to ice cream. This is honestly one of the coldest days of winter that I've been out in. It's the temperature and that evil wind.

    Beautiful nests. The faux ones would fake me out for a while and then I'd start looking for all those natural elements that the birds use as I see in the real nest. One was plucking a horse tail or something...I see all that long white hair...and tucking feathers in, too. Very charming little birdie home. (One of my favorite nests has a blue ribbon woven in it.)

  5. Hello, Pamela

    Even the faux nests could pass for real, based on your photos. A few years ago, a robin made a nest it my arbour. Every now and again, I was able to stand on tiptoe and sneak a peek. I wonder if a new family will take up residence this year!

    I hope you're having a lovely day.

  6. Great photos Pamela. I picked up a very small nest last fall that had fallen and my arms started to crawl....small bugs, many small bugs......So they stay on the ground now and I make my own....

  12. Nests are so fun to find. I was lucky to have a wren build a nest on my front porch last year. It was a gorgeous nest!

  13. Enjoyed your pretty mosaic of nests - new beginnings.
    Thanks for stopping by. Lots of robins around lately - don't think they all left for the Winter (?). They may be hiding this next week as rain coming in and cooler temps.
    Have a great week.

  16. Oh what a beautiful little batch of nest and eggs. Ah I am SO ready to see Spring and baby birds. SNOW is forcasted here "again" in New England for tomorrow ! Sigh I pulled out Summer photos from around the farm last year and made a sunny inspiring blog post to cheer me up a bit. LOVE seeing your little nests and egg mosaic.

  17. The image of an egg-filled nest always pulls me. Your images are lovely - they'd make great cards.

  18. Love your bird nests. I have seen a pair of cardinals going to and fro from a yew at the side of the house. They may be staking out their territory. Valerie

  19. Wow, I collect bird nests as well, both real and not. Some of them are some wonderful weaving with soft, downy insides. I love to display them in teacups. Hope you have a great week.

  22. Evening, love the nests, real or faux......so sweet with the pretty eggs.......I have a collection of real nests that have fallen, little masterpieces.....Blessings Francine.

  23. The faux bird nests looked so real! I am worried that a bird couple has been building a nest in the fold up awing over my patio. I keep seeing them fly up towards it and back and forth. If they do I'll have to wait till the baby birds leave the nest before I can crank out the awning for shade. I'd hate to disturb them now.

  24. Gorgeous nests - the faux ones really are as good as the real thing, and they are all so beautifully photographed. A lovely spring feel to this post.

  25. Such sweet nests. There's something so touching...so sentimental about seeing a nest with eggs in it. It is such a thing of beauty and creation.
    Thank you for sharing your stunning photos.
    Blessings,

  26. The real nest looks a lot softer to nest in, so that would be my pick of the lot. They are all beautifully crafted, aren't they? : )

  27. I love the idea of adding true natural elements to your home decor! I have a few nests that I found and are now in the potting shed so you've inspired me to get them out and feather my indoor nest once again! smiles Anna

  28. love the nest photos! The real nest will be built again soon! I am looking for the robin which has been spotted in my neck of the woods already...Spring is just around the corner despite the lack of evidence! :-)
