I discovered a Song Sparrow nest when my approach spooked the adult. I went to look and found a nest with four eggs…I had no idea of when the eggs were laid. I could see the location from my house, so I kept watch very frequently on the nest site, and when I saw the adult bird leave to eat, I would run over to see if the eggs had hatched. Just four days later, when an opportunity came for me to take another look, I discovered four hatchlings. I had just two other opportunities to visit the nest, the final one on June 11th, when the hatchlings looked so well developed that I didn’t want to risk approaching the nest again. Several days later, I ventured a look and found the nest empty.
