    It looks much like an egg and a chick! And the chick seems to be hungry!

    Hi bienle and Brigitt. Actually I think it's just two eggs, the grey bit that looks like a chick stretching up is just the brood patch.

    With that zoomed view provided by AvastMH it's even easier to see that it is two eggs. Missed that in my viewing screen.
