Birdies

Just a quick little post before I go to bed.

The robins are nesting on my house again. I hope this bunch has better luck and doesn't get eaten by crows or cats or whatever.
Generally, it's really annoying when they nest right by my front door, but maybe it will protect them a little better. These parents seem a lot more mellow than previous parent birds. When I go on the deck, they don't fly off screaming like most robins do, they just quietly fly to the big maple in front and chirp a bit.



So, yesterday I took a quick peek to see what was there.



They are still sitting today, and I think they laid eggs over the weekend. I forget how long the eggs take to hatch.


And, I found about 25 mutant clovers in ma's yard - before Barb went and mowed the lawn and cut the rest down.
Most were 5 leaf, a few 4's and one 6.
here are some of the best ones.



I did find another patch behind the barn and on the other side of the house with more, so I have to do more searching tomorrow. Might as well grab all I can find - I need lots and lots of luck!
Found this little guide, and one thing the guy says is very true. If you stand over the patch, you can spot the mutant leaves very easily. Your eyes naturally go the the 'thing that looks wrong'.

so, go find yourself a patch and tell me if you find any.
Good Luck! ;)

What a beautiful picture of the birds' nest and eggs!

Cool clovers! Love how you arranged them for the photo, too. I didn't know clovers could have such differing number of leaves!
