The wind’s been howling outside the past few days. After a big wind last spring, I found a bird egg on the ground. The shell was cracked. I brought it in the house, placed it on a clean paper towel, and gently pried away the shell to show my son what was inside. I wish the little thing could have survived the wind and stayed safe in its nest. Click on photo to enlarge so you can see how surprisingly human it looks.
