This is a bluebird nest with five eggs found in a bird house and mysteriously abandoned. Very likely one adult was killed and its mate fled, or it was killed by a House sparrow, but the eggs were left intact, (unlike most HOSP behavior). Originally there were six eggs, but one broke. It was on the edge of my neighbor's porch just off Greenbush Road, Charlotte
