I can barely make it out. It's the back side of a bird, resting upon a nest, but what kind?

It is a Red Wing Black Bird.
I took a peek inside and there lay three speckled blue eggs!
I'd love to have a nesting pair of one of my favorite birds...perhaps with the pond, I'll have a better chance of attracting them--especially if I add wetland plants.
