Bird eggs

Asked March 20, 2018, 12:38 PM EDT

I believe there are leftover bird eggs, in a nest, built last fall. I have pics. Should I remove the eggs? I presume that they are non-viable(from last occupant). It appears that another bird is attempting to build a nest(add-on) to this previous structure. Will dead/left eggs interfere with future habitants or should I remove the left eggs?
