This morning I waited outside, while he pounded on the inside wall. To my surprise a startled starling burst from the bathroom fan vent.
When we'd put the fan in, my brilliant husband had installed a panel so the vent would be accessible. When we removed the panel and pulled the vent hose out--to our surprise, we found the entire thing was stuffed with nesting materials. As you can see the eggs were lying at the top.
The small eggs are a fragile blue color and are rather beautiful. They look like they might have been newly laid.
They are so lovely I am going to preserve them--I like how they look in this tiny delicate tea cup.
