We have an open fronted, barn type garage, and I noticed this blackbirds nest high up in the corner. She peers over the edge of the nest at us as we come and go, and we can jsut see her orange beak pointing toward the roof in the gloom. I couldn't resit a look into the nest and she is sitting on 5 eggs. I think that they are quite large eggs for such a meium sized bird.

here are a couple of photos

    How lovely Jill. Hopefully you'll be able to keep an eye on her and watch the babies emerge too. Good pictures for scrapping too. x

    I'll bet you were perched on one foot, on top of a bucket resting on top of an old Singer sewing machine table. How are the bruises? ^_~

    You did well to get those shots. x

    How sweet! I love the colours of blackbirds' eggs. Get ready for a cacophony of cheeping.
