New Neighbors

I noticed some new neighbors this past week.
The nest is in a bush next to the house, about five feet from the ground, so it is easy to peek inside. The parent birds do not like me to do that, and complain when I do.

Can you tell what kind of birds these are? (I would not know if I did not see the parents.)

This is a good, good sign of spring.

I would say Morning Dove but they are probably too stupid to care if their young are in danger. Definitely not a blue jay or you wouldn't have been able to take the picture without blood on the lense.
