|I wonder what bird made this nest?|

|"The momma bird must have left this feather|
to let the babies know that are safe."
There was lots of observing and questioning about these eggs and what kind of bird may have laid them.
|Our bird's nest inquiry board.|
A few of the kiddos decided that the empty nest also should have eggs in it for the momma bird to look after. So they busily began making blue eggs out of playdoh. Another kiddo came by later in the day to witness these home made eggs, and worried that the momma couldn't come and keep them warm so she began looking for a blanket to wrap them in. Unfortunately our blankets are all too big for this nest, so after more searching, CY decided that our coloured feathers would be an excellent way to keep the eggs warm.

|Apparently 3 eggs wasn't enough.|
Maybe these will hatch, maybe they won't - but this has been a fun mini inquiry into tiny blue robin eggs.
