A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Nature School For Teachers - Fall 2020 Launch!
first there were 4 egss, 2 white and 2 spotted.
then, there were 6, 3 and 3.
then, they birds were born, 1 light bird and 3 dark ones
Now there are 3 dark ones
There's a strange thing, when we first spotted them there were only 4 eggs, 2 whites and 2 spotted, the next day there were 6 of them like in the picture.We are thrilled because we can't explain who is it possible that 2 more eggs appeared, and they 1 white and 1 spotted
Sergio Monteiro, I don't think they are cuckoo eggs though, I believe there aren't cuckoos in Mexico, so it has to be a similar bird.
The blue eggs look like Dunnock (Prunella modularis) eggs: http://www.arkive.org/dunnock/prunella-m...
Great spotting, ScarlettKaletKale. Couldn't these be cucKoo eggs in some other species nest? The gray, brown spotted eggs look like cuckoo eggs to me.
Ava T-B, Done! thank you, hope you can help me identify the birds, i believe they are 2 different types of birds. the one who laid the white ones and the spotted ones.
Please consider adding this spotting to the Animal Architecture mission at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8082...
