I have been in this particular area off Power's Rd. several times looking for a mystery bird I heard there. Every time I enter the trail, out pops this guy telling me to go away. I move through the area as quickly and as quietly as possible in an effort to not disturb the birds too much.
I came across this robin's egg on the trail at Bidgood's Park on May 24th. I don't know much about the hatching process, other than having hatched many quail in an incubator. This egg actually looks like the bird may have pecked its way out. I think this because the opening is localized and there seems to be no damage to the remainder of the shell. Have the robins all around hatched by now?
I heard a "cheep" rather than a "chip" coming from the trees behind my home yesterday. At the time I wondered if it might be a baby bird. It is exciting times to get out and watch nature unfold.
