Lovely Wife was sitting on our back patio and was reading.
We have a mockingbird in the back yard that always yells at us when we go out there.
Lovely Wife called to me and when I went out there she showed me that the bird had made a nest in our crepe myrtle bush.
She and Number One Daughter are too short too see in the nest, and I could just look over into it and see a couple of eggs. I've never seen a bird's nest that low.
Lovely Wife's camera battery was dead, so I got my camera and did the paparazzi style hold-the-camera-up-and-aim-as-best-you-can.
Not a great picture but pretty cool anyway. I haven't been where I could see wild bird eggs in a long time.
I only took a couple of pics. Mama or Daddy bird was yelling at me for getting that close to the nest.
