Busy, busy day, but I have time to join in "Our Beautiful World"
once again this week...this weeks word is "Eggs"
I have one photo of eggs, other then Easter, but this one is my favorite!!
At our lake home the drive is stone/gravel and one Summer when we
arrived we saw a very "distressed" bird running around in the drive.
The bird is a Killdeer.....they run kind of crazy as to distract you from their nest.
The nest that they build in the ground!!
Well, this silly bird had her nest much to our dismay, built in our drive!
We marked it with a stake so as not to drive over it...
but one night, during my sleeplessness I heard a commotion
and being so dark couldn't see a thing...
but next morning, the eggs (shells) were strewn all over
and the poor Mama bird was gone...so sad, as we had been watching the nest for days!!
So either a fox or a raccoon had a tasty meal overnight..that's nature I guess!!
