The Saga Continues


Just when there was nothing going on in my life another egg appeared in our abandoned nest. One lonely little egg. Sam noticed this afternoon that there was a Robin sitting in the nest. I took a peek when no one was looking. I had seen a bird earlier this week that looked like it was repairing the nest. I had left it there just in case since I read that a bird might have two or three nestings in a season. Do birds care if they are an only chick?

Continue to watch the nest. Robins lay only one egg per day. Don't think that this is information I had right on the top of my head. I looked it up. Mainly to see if the mama bird would ignore the nest if she had only one egg. That's how I learned she lays one a day. And now you're wanting to know the reason. Tra-la. Female birds have one working ovary, unlike mammals, which have two. Fascinating, huh.

Yaya was right. Today there was another egg in the nest. Susan, next door, has 5 eggs in a nest in her fern. I think there is a possibility that two robins have laid eggs there but I need to look it up . .
