Robin or Catbird
Whoa, tough one. I'm not experienced on egg and/or nest id, but I'll throw my hat into the ring with Rose-breasted Grosbeak.Interesting challenge!-Mike
Good news and bad news, actually more bad than good. So far no one has the right ID for the nest and unfortunately the nest was robbed so I have no baby photos. The good news is that the birds have built a new nest in my pine tree. I found the nest this morning and I will definitely blog about it.Any more guesses on an ID?
Well, I'll go with guess numero dos: Chipping Sparrow?Sorry to hear the nest was robbed, but glad they're trying again. And that you found the second nest - nice!-Mike
It's difficult to show the size of the nest with a photo, so I'm going to say that he bird is bigger than a Sparrow. Richard was pretty close with his two guesses.
Hmmm. Not a Robin or Catbird...the next one that comes to mind is a Mocking Bird?
Bingo Chilibean - well done! As I mentioned the Mocker has renested in my yard and I'll be doing a post about it soon - stay tuned.
