Thanks so much, Katja!

A sad story.The following happened: After a thunderstorm, our huge and very old willow tree cracked and fell down. The nest box was still fixed on the trunk and when we opened it, we found the dead chicks and one egg in the nest. The adults (that we had never seen fly in or out) had abandoned the hutch.

I think it will be difficult to ID the still naked birds. The egg is tiny, not more than one centimeter, white with light brown or yellowish spots.

Thanks for your help!
