My dad took me to the Kentucky castle’s farm yesterday, and we found four active nests.

What Kind Of Chicks Are These?

What kind of chicks are these? We didn’t see a parent nearby.

    Hi, The photos of the nests you have above are not House Wren nests – House Wrens nest in cavities inside trees or nest boxes, and have reddish-brown speckled eggs. The nests look like they could possibly be a sparrow of some sort (the second photo) or a Blue Jay (third photo). Nests can be difficult to identify, and so it may be impossible to ID these nests for sure without seeing an adult, or waiting for the young to get to the later end of the nestling stage when their plumage can be a helpful clue.
    As for the chicks, they are most likely American Robins.

    Sorry, lol. I meant House Finch. I saw the female House Finches flying out of the nests with eggs, but unfortunately I didn’t see any parents by the one with chicks. I did hear an American Robin in the top of the tree, but it only stayed there for less than a minute.
