Another Nest, More Eggs

My friend, Carolyn, spotted this nest on the tree outside my front door this morning. It's a much bigger nest that the one on my front door, safely nestled in the crotch of the tree.

When we peeked inside we were rewarded by this beautiful sight. What a color, it took my breath away! I'm assuming that they are robins' eggs, being that scrumptious Robins's Egg Blue, one of my favorite colors. I was able to get a nice clear shot because I could rest my hand against the tree to steady it.
Now I have two nests to watch. This one looks like it has room for more eggs, although I don't know how many they lay. She must still be adding to the nest since that one piece of long grass is still bright green.

Wonderful pictures! Those would make some amazing quilts. Thank you for your comment on my blog on my "heart" piece. I took your suggestion and posted a close-up of the beading.
