Unknown Species, Any help ID’ing Appreciated
While out for birding along the Matchedash Wetland Trail in Matchedash Bay, Ontario (Nearby Coldwater, Ontario) this morning I accidentally flushed a mature bird off of a nest that was located in a derelict Milk truck from the 60’s or 70’s (If my guess is right) unfortunately I was unable to get a clear look at the matter individual before it flew off out of a broken window. I
I took a quick cell phone pic of the nest to see if there was any eggs or young in it; The photo revealed 2 Eggs and 2 Hatchlings.
My research so far has turned up the possibility that the egg on the left is that of a Black-Capped Chickadee, But I am unsure. (My knowledge on nesting/identifying eggs is weak).
I am also unsure about the egg on the right, and the hatchlings.
any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance,

Yellow-crowned Night Heron on nest.
These two Brown-crested Flycatcher were using a nestbox (19) at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, San Antonio, TX. The nestboxes were part of my son’s Hornaday Project for Boy Scouts.
This year I have seen more Eastern Bluebirds in my backyard. I counted a number of four one day. These birds are such a delight to see. Their blue feathers are so beautiful, makes you want to get a glimpse or try not miss an opportunity to capture a shot of. I was thrilled after I put a nest box up they started becoming regulars. Though they never used the new box, they however nested in my martin apartment I have up, which was different but a wonderful experience none the less.
Seagulls Black headed gulls
This is a breeding American Goldfinch. Of course it turned it’s head just as I took the shot, so I don’t know if it’s a male or female. My husband saw three goldfinches together ~ two pale ones and a bright one. I am excited to have them in my yard as they winter here in Vermont.

American Robin Nest Update
Excitement on my Windowsill—Ansel attacking his reflection, a male Northern Cardinal eating, and a Carolina Wren entering my nest box for the first time!
Ansel flew to my window AGAIN and attacked his reflection. FOR 30 MINUTES. AND HE’S STILL HERE!!!
He won’t stop even through I drew highlighter on the outside of my window to break up his reflection. This time I’m even more sure it’s territorial aggression because another Tufted Titmouse flew up and he didn’t attack it. I’m guessing she’s Ansel’s mate. While I was videoing, a male Northern Cardinal came to eat and a Carolina Wren entered my nest box! This is the first time a bird has entered that nest box.
Ansel still will not leave though. What will make him stop attacking his reflection in my window sill!?
First Bird I’ve Seen in my Nest Box!!!
4/8/2021, 11:30 AM — A Carolina Wren entered my window nest box!!!
I put it out in March, and birds are finally stating to check it out!!!
Today is the first time I’ve seen one enter it, but a Carolina Chickadee and Tufted Titmouse have inspected it before.
