Doing a garden clean up and discovered a nest between fence and house/downpipe. 
Parent birds nowhere to be seen/heard so I have no idea as to id. Could someone 
help me please? Here are some images:

There are 3 babies and one unhatched egg - light blue/green with speckles.

Common birds to our garden are (Melbourne outer eastern suburbs): 
blackbirds, pigeons and mynahs.

Blackbirds were around making a fuss a few weeks ago and I did see their 
fledglings but have not heard them about recently.

If anyone fancies tackling other birds in my "unknown birds" folder Id be most 
grateful for any help.

Thanks in advance

Cheryl Ridge
