Quel surprise!

My daughter's boyfriend is here sleeping and I so want to wake him up before I leave for work! I'd like to see this nest in person. BF's dad went to change the oil in his truck the other day and found this nest with three robin's eggs under the hood. If Mama Robin is sitting on the eggs, they probably won't hatch because when BF is off to work or here (on the other end of the island) she's off the nest too long and the eggs would cool too much. She could still be laying and this morning is looking all over for her nest. Either way, the end does not seem promising.

Too bad for the bird that she can sit on the nest long enough to hatch the eggs. They sure are a beautiful blue, though. Amazing that the bird built a nest in this location.
