OT Mocking Bird
I have a key lime tree at the edge of my veg. garden. There is a mocking bird nest in it with 4 eggs. I watched from the time it was empty, saw the first egg & each day after, another egg was added until there was 4 last Thursday. I have never seen the bird & the nest seems to be abandoned. Is this usual? Every time I looked in, I expected to be attacked but it never happened. Do you think the mother will return at this late date?
