Can I assume this is a Robbin hood?  Which would allow me to do the mitzvah of  שילוח הקן‎?

  @Something Fishy , assuming you know the birds by the eggs as well?

I'm not sure which is cooler? The nest or the eggs?

 God's creation's!

It is an American robin, which has סימנים but no מסורה. So שילוח הקן may be done, but it may not be eaten.

If the nest is not in a public place you might not be able to do it only if you are Mafkir it, ask your LOR.

Didn't know that halacha, interesting.
 The last time I did it was in camp Agudah years ago. Wonder if that was an ok place ?

Robin Hood is a fictional character, what you got is an American Robin.

American Robbin I thought was kosher?

 So it seems a Robbin is the only Bird with blue Eggs?

European is the standard, Israel is full of then and people eat them. 100% Kosher.

 While American there's no mesorah so we don't eat it.

14 days they incubate the eggs, and they lay between 3 and 6 eggs. Interesting..

Any chance the bird will come back after I pick up the eggs to do the mitzvah? Will a glove help from leaving a human scent?

Robins usually do. Sparrows ussually don't even if you use gloves.
Feelings don't care about your facts

American Robin comes back
We  did it four times on four eggs on nest in front of the house
(yes, mafkir'd it first)
now we have babies!
Got the Shiluach Hakan Halachos from R Naftali Weinberger (for ex. https://www.amazon.com/Shiluach-Hakan-Practical-Naftali-Weinberger/dp/1583302999)
he also emailed a Kitzur

Yes, arriving today.(Was supposed to arrive Sunday, got delayed, $10 credit... :) )
Arrived. Assembled. Installed. Looks beautiful. Now how do we inform the guests? They're in the area, but not approaching the feeder.
