Hello. Thank you for your question. Below is the answer from the Extension Agent. For additional assistance, please contact the Pie County Extension Office. I have included the contact information.

Their question on the birds— most likely the mother bird’s babies were knocked out in the wind storm and none are left in the nest. It is also possible that the mother herself is dead or if babies were old enough they may have left the nest naturally.
