Sky blue eggs and cloud white egret chicks.

During an eider census, my research team came across a snowy egret nest. We didn't think the eggs would have hatched yet, but when we peeked inside the nest, we found blue eggs and wet chicks. When we knew the chicks had hatched, we made sure to not enter the heron colony again until the chicks fledged.
