I was about to prune a small boxwood in the garden and wondered why it had bits of dried grasses draped about it. Peering into the top I found this tiny nest and eggs. The eggs were about an inch long. Seems like I won't be pruning there for a while. Does any one know what bird laid these, best I can tell you is that the mother is a small brown bird; a nuthatch?
