Help, bird watchers! (Identified!)

We found this nest in our hanging flowers this morning. It's very small, palm sized. The eggs are maybe half an inch long, pale blue. The mama bird is small and fluttery, but very fast so I didn't get a good look. (To be honest, I wasn't expecting her to fly out of the flowers!)

Edited: it has been identified as a House Finch- sounds like they have a couple broods a year. How exciting!

I can't wait to see if they hatch!

  1. Gorgeous! I found one of these (sadly) washed up in my yard after some rain. I feel like my country upbringing should let me know what they are, but I'm drawing a blank. Robin's eggs maybe?

  2. I Googled and Eastern Bluebird is what came up.

  3. The kids are going to have a blast watching the babies grow if those hatch!
