Eggs of common Nova Scotia birds

The top three birds found in Nova Scotia are red-winged blackbirds, American robins and European starlings. I was curious what the nests and eggs looked like of these and other common garden birds, so I collected some images. Blue is a common theme: check out all these shades of blue! And speckles. But my favourites are the first ones on this list — the artfully unique blackbird eggs.
