Blackcap nest

Blackcap nest, originally uploaded by Sigrid Frensen.
I have a pair of blackcaps nesting beside my front door in the Akebia. Not hidden at all and if it was built a few inches lower I could look into it. Yesterday I managed to take this photo of the eggs when the birds were gone for a few minutes. 5 Tiny eggs.

Today the male was on the nest and he seems a bit more brave than the female. He didn't fly away when we walked in and out the house but stayed on the eggs and looked at us a bit scared. What a man.... I guess the female was admiring her husband from a tree nearby enjoying her Mother's day ♥ *swoon* ♥
