With all of the excitement around here the last few days and fireworks going off 2 feet from her nest the mother mockingbird has abandoned her nest. One egg has a part of the shell missing and one of the three eggs has gone missing, there are no shell pieces and I am not sure what happened to to. There is a rumor floating around that someone touched the eggs, but no evidence. The mother bird is gone and I do not expect to have and baby birds come from the eggs that remain. I am sure Nathan will end up playing with them. Maybe next year!!
