    Happy Mother's Day!!!

    It's a shame because momma bird has abandoned the nest 3 days ago. :-(   A cat has been hanging out in my yard...probably scared her off.

    Mom and dad came back and fought over the house all day and not once would mom go inside. Strange.

    Maybe a predator showed up that you missed. One that doesn't mess with the eggs but left a scent that keeps them away.

    Those are very pretty colored eggs, can't tell what size they are. Are the Mom & Dad bluebird, robin, starling or finch? I'm thinking the entire nest will have to be cleaned & aired out before another bird will build a nest there.

    It belongs to a mom and dad bluebird. They came back yesterday and fought over the nest some more but did not go in. I will give it another week before cleaning out. But in the meantime, I got this cool photo of mom....

    All day until dark, they chirped and flew at each other.

    Thanks. Smile  It's obvious they don't want the eggs so I opened the door and saw one egg was cracked with blood. They are all dead so I removed them and hosed out the house so they can start over. :-(

    Very nice photos. You may need a stove pipe type baffle to keep raccoons, squirrels, cats out. Looks like easy access for snakes. About the only thing they don't climb is slick & shiny metal poles. The cracked bloody egg may have been caused by something reaching in through the hole trying to get the eggs.
