Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Found this on a roll-down awning on our deck. By rolling the awning down, I can bring them to eye level. Then I can roll it back up to return the nest to its sheltered spot under the eave, with no harm done.

Thanks, Karen! As I said above, the eggs look fresh and so I don't expect any action for a week or two. But will watch for signs of parent birds bringing food, and then I will know they've hatched.

Kathy--- this nest is the most beautiful nest I have ever seen. the creation is perfect, it looks so homey, and the eggs are a beautiful peach color. I would want to watch it all the time. I cannot wait to see the babies, hopefully you can get a look at them in progress and post for us. Fantastic shot!!! Karen :0)

Thanks, Linda! Where they built it is very protected; it is the fact that the awning can easily be rolled down that makes the view accessible. I'll post another picture...

Shirley, they are about the size of a small acorn, or the last joint of my little finger. Would take quite a few of these to make up a hen's egg. Thanks for looking and commenting!

Oh hello, Charlotte, you slipped in while I was typing. Thanks for your comment!

You are on a roll with these eggs and
nestlings. YOu have a real eye for
finding them. Great photo! In relation

I am always amazed at the perfect roundness of the nest bowl. We will look forward to the saga, Kathy.

Thanks, Julia; will do! This is one location that snakes have never found or been able to reach, so the chances of chicks hatching and surviving are excellent.

Thank you, Steve and James; I will post updates as they become available. The eggs look very fresh, so it will no doubt be awhile before there's any action.
