Heart Nest with Hands

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. The flowers are blooming, birds are singing lullabies to their nestlings, and the consistent rainfall leaves everything feeling new, fresh, and clean.

As an amateur birder, my favorite part of spring is the return of the robins, red winged blackbirds, and sparrows, as well as the more elusive kingfishers, egrets, and other waterfowl that comes to visit our lake home to nest.

Just the other day, my son came running home with a robin egg that he had found in a neighbor's backyard. It seems like everyone stumbles across some found eggs at some point in time, and leaving them where they are feels like a death sentence.

So what do you do- what can you do?

Removing a Wild Bird Egg is Illegal

Sorry, Folks. If you heard it here first, then I hate to be the harbinger of bad news.
