What a Place to Build a Nest!

A guy doing some work for us here this afternoon noticed a bird fly up out of the shrubbery near him when he was using the hose at the side of our house. He bent down and looked more closely and saw these eggs (see pictures below).

What sort of bird laid these? And why lay them right in a busy path where they could get trampled on?

We’ve now put a cage around the nest.

    We’re worried about these little guys. They’re hatched now, mom is very attentive, but it rained yesterday and the temperatures are getting down close to freezing overnight. Pictures to follow.
