I have huge admiration for the steadfast determination of nesting birds in Springtime.  So much is invested in preparation and in laying, and subsequent care of the eggs until hatching.

A female bird wriggles herself low in the nest and resolutely sits, waits, protects.  Proudly sure of the imminent brood.  It is this look of solid sitting that I wanted to hint at in The Egg Maker.
