    Sorry to hear it. When was this taken?

  2. Very sad, when it could have, likely, been prevented by mounting the box on a free standing pole, with a predator guard.

    May 2015, it is on a free standing pole & we are not allowed to use predator guards on this property

    Thee eggs did not hatch out. Can someone tell me what the probable cause of this would be???There were 5 eggs in the nesting box and they were mostly covered over by the nest.It almost looked like a new nest was being built on top of the eggs.
