Fairly sure these are cowbird eggs, but could be wrong. Also, wondering what the white one belongs to as well!? Please do tell if you know.

    Hi Chelsea, This looks like a House Finch nest with two Brown-headed Cowbird eggs in it. House Finches actually feed their young a ‘vegetarian’ diet, lacking the protein-rich insects that cowbirds need to flourish. We’re betting the House Finch chick will get along just fine, but let us know how it turns out!
