While, I was taking a walk in my garden yesterday afternoon and clicking away photos of nature, I came up to a lonely blue egg on the ground. Couldn’t find a home for it. Not sure if mama bird threw it out of its nest or it fell off while the other eggs were hatching. I just couldn’t leave it on the ground as it was too dangerous with my dogs around. Looked for a nest but I was unsuccessful. I wanted to leave it on a higher ground like in a tree but just thought it to be a bad idea.
Mohan gave me an idea. He said I should take care of it till the bird hatches and becomes a young adult. Hmm did some research to make sure it’s not a snake egg 😉 It seems like a blue bird’s egg, but am still not sure.
Time to incubate the egg with what is available at home. I made a nest of my own, hopefully it works.
Did you know: That a baby bird is called a Twit?
Now, I have to wait for 12 – 14 days for the twit to hatch.
Time to tweet 😉 about my new found egg, hopefully it is not a dead egg. Will keep you posted on the progress of the hatching.
