Lotsa birdies

In the last month there have been two bird nests in our back yard!

The first one was a dark-eyed junco nest with four chicks in it. (The chicks are gone now.)

Now there's a swift nest with seven eggs in it - it'll probably be nine or more in a few days!

The junco eggs were whitish with brown speckles, but the swift eggs are pure white and about as big as my thumb nail (smaller than the junco's)! They look like tiny chicken eggs.
I didn't manage to get all of the eggs in the picture. (The seventh was hiding!)
