--s:I agree that the eggs look precisely like the one in your illustration.But the bird hatching them (and the one I presumed laid them) doesn't look anything like either the House or Bewick's Wren nesting in the birdhouse of which I previously posted a picture.I caught the wren in flight today (they won't sit still) as it left the birdhouse:http://dotcomjoe.com/0416b1And here are a couple of shots from the one nesting behind the container plant (again, very skittish):http://dotcomjoe.com/0416b2I'm unable to view the eggs in the birdhouse, so I can't compare the two nests, but with the eggs in your linked illustration looking suspiciously like the eggs in the open nest, I wonder whether the Wren learned a trick or two from a friendly magpie, and lay some of her eggs in this bird's nestto let her and her mate raise them :-)~aj
