There is now 1 egg in Phoebe's nest. There are varying reports that Phoebe removed the egg that had not yet hatched or a lizard came and grabbed it. The egg that had not yet begun to hatch remains in the nest.
I was not observing at that time, but am hopeful that the remaining egg will hatch. I'm thinking maybe she's getting too old to keep this up much longer. When I saw her the past couple of days she's looking very thin and super hyper.

Thanks for the report golden1
It sounded as if maybe Phoebe disposed of the egg in order to keep the lizard from entering her nest.
Some say she took the egg out with her beak and others say her feet. :dunno:

ETA: I went back and checked the archived video.

Here's the lizard approaching the nest. Phoebe chased it off by knocking it off the branch.

Good MOrning everyone !!Happy St !! Patrick's day !!

I was at Phoebe's nest and there was some conversation on the chat about Phoebe abandoning the nest last night !! The other egg is there but i couldn't get a good look as it was still rather dark there ~~ Did anyone else hear anything about this ?

Thank You Bev .
