It has been suggested by one of our expert moderators that these are likely to be Red Wattlebird eggs. The photographer did not disturb the nest or interfere with it in any way. Bird experts discourage people from approaching birds nests as it may cause a disturbance to the parenting and can also attract predators to it. So unless you can photograph the nest using a really good lens from a safe distance it is best to watch the nest with binoculars to see which species arrives at and leaves the nest.
