Among the leaves of myrtle in the garden of a friend of mine, I found this nest with three not incubated eggs... my friend said that they are eggs of "verdone", scientific name: Carduelis chloris. But why there is no mother to hatch? The female, according to the tab of this bird, do not abandon the nest for 14 days of hatching, the male who takes care of feeding the companion for the duration of incubation.
Perhaps the male is no longer back and the female had to leave the nest to find food? And why also the mother is no longer session?
How many questions... to you the answers!
I wish you a wonderful weekend! :)

ho letto il commento di Ursula e mi sono chiesta :perchè la mia "micia" non caccia nessuno? Convive allegramente con tutti gli uccellini qui intorno.
E' una bellissima foto e preferisco immaginare che la mamma sia andata a farsi un giro e poi torna!: Ciao MC.:)gea
