    When not only is there a bird nest in the bumper guard but she had time to lay an egg. Now what do I do?

    Well, from a natural order of things, hawks eat smaller birds every day. ;>)

        Looks like you need to be buying cigars and start a college fund for your forthcoming grandbirdie.

          Make it worth your while. Create a photo/video journal of the events as they take place. Keep an ongoing record of the egg, the hatching, the feeding, the growth and the eventual "leaving the nest" exploits. It will affirm the sacrifice of not driving the Hawk and be an invaluable example to yourself, your kids and your grandkids, illustrating what is truly important in this life.
          The satisfaction you'll get from driving the car after the parenting is done will make it far more satisfying in the end.
          Just my opinion...
          So, good luck, DAD ! ! !

              All great suggestions/comments. I'm pretty sure I won't be driving it to the chapter meeting on June 11th. Good idea for video. Have granddaughters coming for summer visit in a few weeks. Might be fun for them to see.
              Thanks all!

                I would suggest a live cam feed.

                  OOooooo, I really like the live feed idea too. I would love to watch the little chick hatch. Who knows?? It may turn out to be a Chicken Hawk. Wouldn't Ted Harbit be jealous? ! ? !

                    Chances are there will be more eggs in the next day or two! Just think, twins or triplets, or more! the grandkids will love it. Bill

                      For me, it kinda depends on what type of bird it turns out to be. For years, I have built and maintained Blue Bird houses. The thing that impresses me about blue birds is that they are clean. The adult birds take the droppings in their beaks and drop them away from the nest. I thought that was to keep the nest clean and the smell to a minimum to keep predators away.

                      I made a mistake in assuming that most cute little birds were like that. So, when a couple of little house sparrows decided to build a nest in the decorative wreath my wife keeps on our front glass storm door, I was excited about the opportunity to observe them. To my disappointment, they turned out to be anything but clean. Instead of hauling the droppings away from the nest, the little buggers began to decorate the upper rim of the nest with droppings. Once they had it a solid mass of mess...it began to spill over, oozing down the door. Slimy little trails of filth.

                      When they finally got mature enough to leave the nest, I had to discard the wreath and pressure wash the door. This year, I have removed and placed at least five nests into the shrubbery growing in front of the porch. I'll not have them building in the wreath or on the porch again.

                          Once it hatches, send it to me to take care of the brown widow spider I can't seem to get out of my left rear hubcap. :P
