I KNEW they were laying in the woods. I'd found 4 small nests, but they never went back to those after I took out the eggs. I knew exactly which birds were not using the nest boxes. But couldn't find the spot till just now. FIFTEEN eggs! This surprised me for 3 reasons: 1) it was far from where they normally forage. 2) I (thought I had) looked there already 3) It had not been predated. We have fox, coyote, skunk, weasels, etc here. So.... can anyone think of any reason these eggs shouldn't be OK to eat? It's been cool here (not over 50 for the last week) but they have been rained on a couple of times. Thanks! Oh.... I placed some fake eggs after collecting the eggs. Hopefully they won't go off and find yet another nesting spot.
