[Tweeters] RE: accidentally uncovered junco nest

While working in the back yard (cleaning up the branches from a tree that
came down in a storm), my husband accidentally uncovered a junco's nest with
5 eggs! We aren't sure whether to try to cover it or just leave it alone?
This happened last year while mowing in another part of the back yard. We
tried placing a bit of covering over it and then stayed away so our presence
wouldn't create stress. But when we went back a few weeks later to check,
either the parents hadn't come back or something got to the nest.

Suggestions for this time?

Hello All,

The two Black-Necked Stilts continue just before the viewing blinds on Ruddy
Lake (around post 14 I think). They are viewable from the auto route.

Good Birding,
