American robin eggs

Turdus migratorius

Description:

The clutch of the American robin can be as large as 5 eggs but this nest is more typical. Only the female sits atop the eggs for incubation which lasts about 14 days.

Habitat:

Backyard fence row in residential area of Springfield, Missouri.

Notes:

This was happened upon and since we were right there we photographed the nest. I've never seen a robin nest so low to the ground.
