Too Many Eggs?

by Ryan

I have a nest near my window and I can see at least three eggs, maybe four. Are these little birds going to make it or is it going to be too much work for the mother to keep up? I have read that there should only be two eggs. Thanks Ryan

It is very common for birds to have four eggs in their nest. Mother Nature knows what she is doing. Sadly, many times one or more of the eggs are eaten by predators, such as other birds, squirrels, snakes.
