Bird lovers, enjoy the lovely pics of some gorgeous bird nests with eggs!  Remember, in a bird's nest, the only treasure they hide are the eggs .. or their future kids.  These are just a few among many found in nature. 

American Robin

Eggs are among the easiest to recognize with their pale or medium blue color without markings. On occasion, robin eggs, which are just over 1 inch long, can also be white or lightly speckled. An American robinís deep cup nest is constructed of grass and mud and lined with finer grass.

Northern Mocking Bird

A northern mockingbirdís nest uses an array of unusual materials, including sticks, stems, bits of fabric and string, and the birds prefer to build nests between 3-10 feet off the ground. The eggs of a northern mockingbird are just 1 inch long with a bluish-green color and dark brown speckles or splotches.

House Finch

The house finch is one of the most common backyard birds and can be found in nearly any habitat, and their nests show just as much adaptability. The cup-shaped house finch nest is constructed from twigs, grasses and leaves and can be found in any suitable location, including trees, shrubs, cacti, on the ground, under house eaves and in nesting boxes. House finch eggs are .75-.8 inches long with a very pale blue color and small, infrequent spots that are typically concentrated on the larger end of the egg.

Vermilion Flycatcher

The eye-catching vermilion flycatcher is a favorite among birders because of its brilliant plumage, and its nests and eggs are just as lovely. The cup-shaped nest is sturdily constructed of sticks, grass, rootlets and similar materials, and it is often decorated with bits of moss or lichen that help serve as camouflage. The eggs are approximately .75 inches long and are a creamy white with bold, thick blotches of lavender, brown or gray.

Rock Pigeon

Just as rock pigeons are amazingly adaptable to urban habitats, so are their nesting preferences. Pigeons will build a loose platform of sticks, leaves and grass in nearly any sheltered location, including gutters, building ledges, windowsills, abandoned boxes and planters. Pigeons generally lay two white, unmarked eggs that measure 1.5 inches long.
