View Full Version : I'm gonna be a MAMA!!!

Well not me directly....

See my front porch has this light that for a few years has hung kinda lopsided but not had the time or courage to fix it (requires getting on a ladder 10 feet up).

Normally this isn't a problem, but today, I saw a tiny bird fly out from under my porch from the light fixture, and so I decided to see what was inside....

See attached pictures! I of course left the nest alone once i saw the egg, and put the cover back up with the same amount of space for the mama bird to get in and out.

But does anyone know what kind of bird that egg came from?

my finger in the egg picture is my pointer finger, and the egg is only slightly longer then the tip to that first joint....maybe a 1/4 -1/2 an inch.

Possibly a quail egg?

Keep an eye on it, in case the mother doesn't come back.

Kinda looks like a Robin's egg to me...
