So I'm not the only one finding nests where they shouldn't be. Looks like the same eggs I found too.

I saw a little brown bird perched on my tomato cages so I think that was the one that laid them. I believe another bird (cowbird?) laid 2 eggs in there and pushed 2 eggs out. The top 2 eggs were speckled alot more and bigger than the other eggs plus there is the egg that is outside of the nest.

I don't think my cats will let the birds live there for much longer.

Cow birds are the enemy at our house! They are responsible for lowering the songbird populations drastically. Interlopers!
