Is my thermostat compatible with Nest

Ah, so yes you thermostat is compatible with any of the Nest Thermostats.

Give this wiring a try.

Red - R to Rc or R

Green - G to G

White - W to W1 or W

Yellow - Y to Y1 or Y

The "or" is for the Google Nest Thermostat.

Nest thermostats are designed to work without a common ("C") wire in most homes. During installation, a small number of customers may find that the Nest Thermostat does not receive sufficient power. The Nest Power Connector or a C wire may be necessary. See g.co/nest/cwire for details.

How many wires are attached to the Rh/B terminal?

Thank you for the reply Patrick. There is only one wire going into the Rh/b. It appears that red wire going into it, is just a place holder not a working wire, which is looped into the Rh/c as well, (U shaped).   I hope that makes sense.  All actually functional wires are in R, G, W, and Y.
