Suburban wildlife

We have had a bird feeder in our front yard for a few months now. Last week, all of sudden, bird nests popped all over our front bushes, in between a lamp and the brick wall, and on a windowsill.

Yesterday we noticed an egg on one of the nests. I took a picture today, for posterity.

  1. I would think the birds who lost their nests during the hurricane have to build something to live in until spring comes and it's time to build a new nest. However, it does seem odd that they've laid an egg! Do you have any idea what kind of bird that nest belongs to? I remember plants and animals seemed off by a season for a while three years ago, after Hurricane Rita, as well.

  2. I am not sure. I see a lot of turtle doves around lately. Maybe it belongs to one of them?

  3. awww.... I love the birds nests in our yard.

  4. A green egg? Wow, how cool. I love bird watching in the backyard. Unfortunately, we now live in a new neighborhood with few trees or bushes--and virtually no trees. Boring.
