The Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) is a thrush that breeds across much of Eurasia. It is also known in English dialects as throstle or mavis. It has brown upperparts and black-spotted cream or buff underparts and has three recognised subspecies. Its distinctive song, which has repeated musical phrases, has frequently been referred to in poetry.

The Song Thrush breeds in forests, gardens and parks, and is partially migratory with many birds wintering in southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East; it has also been introduced into New Zealand and Australia. Although it is not threatened globally, there have been serious population declines in parts of Europe, possibly due to changes in farming practices.

The Song Thrush builds a neat mud-lined cup nest in a bush or tree and lays four or five dark-spotted blue eggs. It is omnivorous and has the habit of using a favourite stone as an "anvil" on which to smash snails. Like other perching birds (passerines), it is affected by external and internal parasites and is vulnerable to predation by cats and birds of prey.

hi Bartha,
lovely eggs of a Song Thrush. blue! amazing..
but as far as i know, bird-nest photography was prohibited in the the world of birding. there is no such hard rule, actually. it never was. [we make rules, and we only break them, right? :)] ..but it is just the question of giving respect and privacy to those angels when they are tensed and helpless regarding their nests/ eggs/ kids.
i hope i didn't hurt you and could make my points clear :)
if possible, pls remove the post. i beg. so that no one else gets encouraged later to take similar shots...
i respect your inclination towards Nature.
with regards

a nice documentation but I am also agree with Ruby! and the photographic point of view Focus is some where else not on the egg. so, sorry
best wishes and regards
