Black Bird Nest in my back yard

We were trimming the ivy last week when we discovered a nest.  It was empty and I thought we might have scared the birds away.  Two days later I put my hand in and discovered there were eggs inside!!  I couldnt see inside, but took my camera and blindly took a picture...  Not being an expert on birds, I searched the net to see what kind of bird was nesting there.  I knew it wasnt a small bird by the size of the eggs.  Knowing we have many black birds around, I did a search on their eggs... jackpot!!

Why do you say that it is a robin's nest goodcall?

I haven't heard that they use other bird species nests - but that they will reuse their last year's nest, if it is still intact.

Hi There-- The nest is a robin's nest. The eggs could be a Robin's, but could also be a black birds b/c they are dark blue, so the black birds must have used the nest. It is 100% a Robin's nest though. I enjoyed your writings. Talk to you soon.
