YOU HAVE JUST SHOWN ME WHAT BIRD THESE EGGS BELONG TO. THANK YOU.
Cowbirds are native so removing or disturbing their eggs is illegal.
As a native species, the Brown-headed Cowbird is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and taking eggs is illegal. So any person who violates the Migratory Bird Treaty Act by murdering baby cowbirds is subject to a criminal penalty of up to $5,000 for each bird unlawfully taken or possessed; civil restitution fee for each bird unlawfully taken or possessed; and. license suspension or revocation
