Description

I had photographed the female with a stick in her mouth on the 1st, and I found the nest but wasn’t sure if it was actually a nest. Then I went to double check on the 11th and sure enough it was! I’m so excited to get to watch them grow up!

    Those seem to be Northern Mockingbird eggs as they are blue with brown spots.

  2. Texas Bird Family says:

    Also, any ideas on how to attract cardinals?

  3. Ava Johnson says:

    Actually, they are Cardinal eggs.
    I just searched up mockingbird eggs and they are similar, but I’ve seen the Northern Cardinal incubating them.

      Interesting… I just did a search on Cardinal eggs and they tan with brown spots, but some pictures showed them light blue like your’s.

  4. Ava Johnson says:

    I think it’s just the lighting. They’re actually white.

  5. Ava Johnson says:

    They might be a little blue-ish
