Mid-Spring Downunder: Nest and Eggs of Little Shrike-Thrush - Colluricincla megarhyncha

Unfortunately the eggs had disappeared today ... not a trace! Likely culprit would have to be a snake!! I was so excited about the possibility of watching the eggs hatch!

Yes ... poor things. There was no evidence of broken eggshell, so it's likely they were swallowed whole!

Probably was one of the Children's Pythons we see around here all the time. We haven't seen the mother bird since!
