At the End of the Day, Still 4 Eggs

There have been a lot of vocalizations from inside the egg(s) today but by sundown there was no hatch.  However, if you look closely there appears to be a prominent hole in the egg closest to the front!  There's a good chance this egg will hatch sometime during the night (day or night is all the same when you're inside of an egg...!).  

The gravel is dark with wetness throughout the box in this photo except immediately around the eggs because of a heavy rainstorm that rolled through the downtown area about 7 p.m.  Heavy rain pelted the ledge including inside the nestbox--which is usually pretty protected from precipitation.  Spark was on the eggs at the time doing a great job at keeping them dry.
