ID revealed: Mystery nest



The mystery nest belongs to a pair of noisy Gray Catbirds. So far they are doing well and I expect the eggs to hatch later next week.

Dangit, I was looking in my nest field guide last night, and I realized they were way too blue to be robin's eggs. I slapped my forehead V-8 style and thought, "Catbird!"

Glad to know my second sorta guess was right.

I would have guessed Robin too - my egg ID sux. I am getting better as I take pictures and find nests. I think the trick lies with the location/type of habitat that the nest is in.
