Little Wonders

Around this time last year a bird had made it's nest in my rose tree in front of my patio.  I think some sort of rodent got to it because one day there were four eggs and then another day there were two and then the next day they were gone.  Last month I noticed a new bird's nest in the same area, so I took a picture hoping that the eggs would stay untouched.  Here's a picture of the eggs.

 I wish I knew what kind these are.  I wonder why the eggs are differnet colors.  The little bird protecting her nest is just a tiny brown bird.  I'll have to do a bit of research.

Anyway, today  I was going to treat the roses for blackspot, but decided against it because they hatched!  I took a couple of quick pictures before the mommy came back... but she was close by chirping at me.  I made sure not to touch them.

Life is precious.
