House Finch nest had 3 eggs 6-26-23 The next day it had only 1 egg. On 7-2–23 my husband saw a bird take off from the nest. He only caught a glimpse of it…slender gray sparrow size. As of today 7-4-23 the nest is empty. I haven’t seen a HF since the raid which is strange because they are always around. The bird population seems much different this year. Even the House Finches struggled raising their broods this year losing chicks along the way.
