Wow, good eyes Dave. I would be fascinated to watch how these hatchlings grow up together (eventually, the cuckoo trying to kill the host species), so I wouldn't touch the tree untill the drama is all over.Looks like you have two different kinds of eggs there. A cuckoo type bird that lays its eggs in other nests ?
Most likely a brown headed cowbird. They apparently can parasitize over 200 hundred other species of birds. Their eggs will actually hatch a day or two before the other eggs, and the chicks grow rapidly, giving them a huge advantage over their nest mates. Very interesting survival mechanism...Yeah, my dad said that the different egg is now a different bird that is double the size of the others. I didn't know some birds did that.
