Teeny Tiny Bird’s Nest

July 3rd, 2008

While I was visiting my mom the other day she told me about a tiny bird’s nest in one of her butterfly bushes. It really is a tiny nest, you can’t really tell by the photo, but the eggs are about the size of marbles. We’re not sure what kind of bird it is, I’ll have to see if I can figure it out? The little bird was chirping at us from a tree while we took a few photos of it’s little treasures.
A few sites to help identify birds & their nests:
All About Birds – a great general website to help identify birds.
Sialis – has photos of many eggs and how to identify birds by the eggs in the nests.
Nest Watch– helps identify birds by the sizes of their nests and the eggs inside. You can also sign up and enter the information about the nests located in your yard. This would be a great thing to do with kids!

    My mother has a small nest in a bush and the eggs are blue with brown spots. I’ve tried looking on-line, but haven’t seen anything that I can pinpoint. The next is pretty small and very tightly woven, for lack of a better term.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.

I found these this morning growing on my pile of Sweet Peet. They're very pretty.
