Bird's nest on front porch eave.
I did not see the nest until I noticed a bird flying away from the porch as I opened the front door. The location of the nest is tucked away. I recognize pieces of a plant that we have on the porch. The parents did a great job building the nest. I hope the eggs will hatch and the parents will be able to take care of their babies until they are old enough to leave the nest. The parents are either sparrows or finches. The eggs are a very faint blue.
