Easter Eggs


We've been watching a pair of busy birds, maybe purple finches (??) construct this nest on our front porch over the past two weeks.  It is built on the top of a Christmas wreath (that I had neglected to take down and now I can't for obvious reasons).  Today it is Easter, and when I peeked into the nest this morning four little pale blue eggs had been laid.   They look just like the speckled malted milk candies I've eaten too much of this morning.
