One Baby Bird Survives

It would appear that, out of three eggs laid, only one has hatched. If you look very closely at the picture below, you'll see that the fledgling bird is rested atop another egg. Maybe it's a last ditch attempt to get that egg to finally hatch. Maybe the momma bird just isn't much of a house cleaner.

Taking this particular picture was not an easy task. Momma bird has been very aggressive lately, even going so far as to make a dive bombing attempt on the poor kid who mows my lawn. I happened to find the nest unattended yesterday and quickly grabbed my ladder and camera, managing to get the shot in about 30 seconds.
