Type of bird eggs

Asked July 18, 2019, 2:53 PM EDT

We came back from vacation, was watering a hanging basket on our front porch, and a bird flew out. Inside are 4 eggs in a nest. What type of bird eggs? Should we just rehang the basket in the same spot, or move it on to a hook further away from our seats on the porch?

Hello,

What a great find! We recommend contacting Vermont Audubon with your question:
Green Mountain Audubon Center
255 Sherman Hollow Road

In the meantime, however, it would be best to leave the basket as-is, and avoid the area as much as possible so that the adult bird(s) return to the nest.
