House Finch Nest...

On our covered patio, just outside the door to our living room, we have a house finch nest.  The nest looks like it's about to tumble down, though some gentle tugging shows that it's more secure than it looks.  Its position just outside the main entrance to our house means that the poor mother bird is getting disturbed quite a few times a day – she flies away each and every time we use the door.

Yesterday I stuck my iPhone up there to see if there were any eggs.  To my surprise, the nest had five eggs in it.  Taken together, these eggs seem to be about the same size as the mama bird, which seems unlikely.  A little research shows they have between 2 and 6 eggs, though, so this probably isn't all that unusual.
