Momma Bird

EggsThe kids ran in to tell me that found a bird’s nest.  This morning we looked at it again, and discovered a bird sitting on her eggs!

We had fun researching what kind of bird this is.  We think it is a red eyed vireo with her egg and two cowbird eggs. A lazy cowbird momma will lay her eggs in another bird’s eggs and let the other bird take care of them.

We will keep watch over this nest. The kids are also watching for other nests. We are really hoping to find a hummingbird nest!
