It’s a perfectly beautiful spring day. The Oklahoma sky is the color of a bluebird egg. Not a single cloud in view. And when the sun shines like this and the temperature is mild, we are almost always rewarded with a lovely little blue egg. And that is the case today. Mama exited the box about 9:30. I checked when I saw her fly out and sure enough– she has laid a third egg. Beginning to look like a real clutch now.

By the way, ‘tres huevos azules’ is not what I had for breakfast, it means ‘three blue eggs’.
