    What kind of habitat is around the nest? Forest, grassland, etc.

  2. Ava says:

    Also, how high up is the nest?

  3. Ava Johnson says:

    I think it’s probably a Northern Cardinal nest. I see you tagged it Carolina Chickadee, but they nest in cavities and nestboxes, so it can’t be their nest.

  4. Ava Johnson says:

    That Cowbird looks really old even though the other eggs haven’t even hatched!

  5. It’s a cardinal eggs.

    It’s in a park. About 25 feet from a lake. I hope the cardinals hatch soon! The cowbird is really cute. It’s doing a good job keeping the eggs warm while the mother is away.

    We saw it today and it has blue feathers, a black beak, and white and black on its face.
