Wow! And what a great photo. Spring is in the air (finally) and Twitter users are spotting bird eggs in strange places.
Gravel is apparently a popular spot.

Who knew? Careful where you step!
Other popular nesting places are grills and hanging flower baskets.

A pleasant surprise that a bird family decided to use our lantern as their home of 2 nests to hatch 5 eggs. pic.twitter.com/U8djuH6gdw
