We finally were able to work out cleaning up our blackberry patch on Saturday. I always forget to take before pictures, but remembered after this time! Husband weed-eated and mowed while I pulled up last year’s canes, raked the cut grass and trimmed some of this year’s canes back a little. We still have work to do on it, but made quite a bit of progress.
While doing this, husband found two nests with eggs. One was definitely a cardinal nest as we saw them fly in and out. This nest contained three beautiful cream colored eggs with brown blotches.
The other nest was a chipping sparrow nest which contained four beautiful blue eggs with brown splotches on them.
Both pair of birds were very glad we were too tired to continue working!
