Baby Cowbird in a nest. Eggs need ID. White with brown speckles. The eggs are about an inch long. There are two eggs. The nest was made of mostly sticks and lots of white down feathers. Any ID?

Baby Cowbird and two eggs
What kind of habitat is around the nest? Forest, grassland, etc.
Also, how high up is the nest?
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.
That Cowbird looks really old even though the other eggs haven’t even hatched!
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.
Its a Blue Jay
Not a cowbird
It’s actually a shrike!
