Food Chain

We came upon the little eggs a couple of weeks ago on the way to the pond in our neighborhood. The momma sandpiper took such good care of guarding them. Eric and Jr put up sticks and ribbons so no one would mow over them and we checked on them often to make sure they were still ok. When the rain would come we would look out the window and hope they were okay. A few days had gone by and when Eric checked on them...NOTHING was there! We are guessing that a snake got them:( We are sad for the momma bird and hope she lays some more eggs in a safer place next time.
