I would have walked right past. Isn't it amazing what children see?
We checked back later and saw the mama bird sitting in the nest.
Jed couldn't believe his luck.
One of Jed's most treasured possessions is a beautiful blue broken egg shell. He found it several years ago and has often wondered what kind of bird hatched from it.
Tonight he compared his eggshell fragments to the photo we took of the nest and it's beautiful blue eggs with brown speckles. Blackbird!
