Unknown Sparrow Nests!!

This nest was found in a field under some fallen over dead grasses. The female was a sparrow that looked to have dark streaks on her chest, perhaps a song sparrow?

    I believe that they are Song Sparrow nests based on Google pictures. Try to get a photo of the females.

    Thank you! The eggs in one nest seem different from the others. Is that amount of variation in egg coloration normal when it comes to Song Sparrows?

      You’re welcome. Eggs themselves can have a lot of variety. Was this egg bigger? If it was a big white egg with brown speckles then it might be a cowbird egg.
