It is spring time, there are lots of birds laying eggs. I do not want to scare them away from their nests. When I discover them with respect I take a few photos and move away. Some birds are much better at building nests and some don't even bother, they lay their eggs on the ground. While at the gardens I saw several nests and a few with eggs. Plus, discovered quail eggs this weekend in my front yard. The mourning dove build nests anywhere,sometimes in the saguaro cactus in the backyard, this year sharing the space with the peach faced love birds.
Drawing a nest with eggs seemed the right thing to do, so I did.
