Look What Hatched!

I'm not poking around in the nest, but I do have to water the fern occasionally, so while I was doing that this morning I took a peek.  To help you envision size, the eggs are about 3/4 inch.

The large speckled egg is a cowbird egg and should be removed if it isn't too late. The cowbird is a brood parasite -- they lay eggs in other birds' nests. The cowbird usually hatches a couple of days ahead of the other birds, the baby gets a head start on the other babies, and they will die. -- this causes the demise of many songbirds. Google 'cowbird' to find out more. They are nasty birds.
