Robin’s egg blue is one of nature’s most striking colors in my opinion. Bird eggs come in a white variety of colors including ranges of white and tan, blue, pink, yellow, green, brown, red, and many more.
Vivid colored eggs may indicate a well-fed mother and healthier hatchlings. The Spruce published a really good article about bird egg coloration here.
I found this broken robin’s egg on the ground under a tree, and of course, stopped to examine and photograph it.
I snapped a few iPhone photographs of this egg shell and placed it back onto the ground. because bird eggs — even broken egg shells — are not legal to possess under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. I published a detailed blog post about this topic here.
Thanks for reading.
