4 and ‘how many’ blackbirds?

Our robins and bluebirds on average hatch about four eggs but the blackbirds usually hatch seven or eight.  WOW!  Since I am still getting into deadlines – for fun – I am posting a photo of a ‘packed full’ red-winged blackbird nest I found. You cannot see them all in this photo, but there are seven babes.

Kids are cool, even when they are chicks in a nest!
