    Hello, I would say definitely an American Robin. It’s not that unusual that the parents haven’t been sighted yet. She will usually lay one egg per day until her clutch is complete (3-5 eggs being typical), and then she will start to incubate them. You should see more of her in a few days.

    Thanks for sharing this interesting nest!
