Even though we couldn't gain access to the property the nest was on, we could always see it from the road. We took photos each Sunday for the past few weeks. This past Sunday, as we drove by we didn't see the nest. I contacted a friend who was able to gain access to the property and he found the nest had been on fire, and he saw three dead chicks on the ground under it. We don't know if it had been struck by lightening, or some other reason. He took photos of the deceased nestlings to show me (very sad).
