Darn it! Pretty sure the are abandoned at this point. I took a photo of the eggs a few days apart and they haven’t moved…not even a blade of grass is moved. So sad and disappointed. Anything I can do to salvage the eggs at this point or are they likely dead?
I would imagine they are no good by now – it has been over 8 days since you have seen mama. Did you dot the eggs with a marker to see if they were being turned, or just looking at their position? I’d wait a few more days and then clean out nest & eggs – it would be getting late in the season there for another nesting I imagine, so no hurry about removing them. Sorry this has turned out bad.
