Fallen nest

We worked in the yard this evening.   In the way back,  under the cedar trees, I saw this fallen nest with a broken egg in it.   We’ve had some strong winds for the last day or so which may have knocked it down — or it could have been an animal.  I believe it’s a bluejay nest and egg.    They have many nests high up in the trees in our yard and they guard them fiercely.   Bluejays usually have 4 or 5 eggs at a time, so this one was either an only child or the other eggs have been snatched away.

Sorry to see this guy won’t make it.
