A couple of artsy friends of mine, Sue Doyle and Terry Decker, gave me the most spectacular bird's nest ever and it included 4 little periwinkle blue woodpecker eggs. Mom unfortunately was electrocuted but her babies will become a piece of art and live on.
In addition Sue Doyle also gave me a decorative bird house which I hung outside on one of my trees couple of years ago and a mother bird liked it enough to have her babies there, it is pretty glitzy. This year the magpies are back in full force so I have to run out and chase them away because she's back and I'm sure that those little guys would make a tasty meal. We have way too many magpies up here again, they eat the songbirds babies and eggs, last year was the first time in a long time I've had birds back in the yard.
