We have several bluebird nesting boxes and every season we have at least a couple of families. I don’t know why, but last month the bluebirds abandoned the eggs in one nest. We kept watching and they weren’t coming back. They are so beautiful – I just had to keep them.
I collect bird nests (for no real reason other than I think they are works of art) so I put a feather in one, along with the three eggs. I would have preferred that the eggs hatched, but since they didn’t, I will enjoy them!
I also save wasp nests, butterflies, etc.
What is wrong with me!!!
