We've watched the chickadees use this nest for the past couple of years. This year, after all the babies flew out of the nest, I saw the nest abandoned, and one little egg that had been left behind.

    I was going to say, I hope not, abandoned, that is. But clearly it is. What a pretty little egg it is too. Isn't the structure of that nest simply amazing? I doubt we could build such an intricate thing using both hands, much less just a beak.

I agree, it was sad to find the egg, but we are hopefull that next year the nest will be full of life again! Yes, Mitch, birds nests are simply incredible! Thanks for your comments!
