A few weeks back I showed a photo of a chipping sparrow nest with eggs in it. I've been keeping away from it to give them some privacy. I figured a month or so had passed and it was time to make sure they had flown.
Richard pointed out the egg sitting on the edge of the nest and I knew that wasn't a good sign. Most mother birds will carry the empty eggs away to make sure predators don't know there's a nest around. I held up the camera and shot this pic. Looks like a larger bird got in and with his beak pecked both eggs open. Sad. But I guess that's nature, right?
