Red-winged Blackbird Eggs

Red-winged Blackbird Eggs

I noticed a Red-winged Blackbird fly off her nest when I was mowing hay July 1st.  Most of the nests have been empty, but this must be their second brood because I’ve seen a lot of fledgling birds hopping and test-flying with their short wings.  I mowed around the nest but am not sure I did it any favors because it now sticks out to predators.  I’ll keep checking to see how it makes out.

    I’ve never seen eggs like that before. Now if you can get those chicken egg size, you’d make a mint. Or make really small eggcups.
