    Oh no! It looks as if a Cowbird has molested another bird’s nest; I had this happen too. I’m afraid this highjacking & replacement of eggs will happen here again with a Black-Capped Chickadee pair which are trying so hard to keep invaders away. But sadly, the BCC almost always lose when it comes to defending a territory or nest. I had to chase a couple of Carolina Wrens away from the Chickadee nest just the other morning. It’s no wonder so many nests are abandoned by the American song birds; it looks like exhausting work, building & then defending them!

    What bird lays different size eggs???? Or are these eggs from different birds just for a beautiful photo? Here in the South, the American Robin lays pretty blue eggs.
