    i highly suggest you get in touch with your fish and game department. keeping birds of prey without a licence is highly illegal. although i have never heard of anyone getting in trouble in a situation like this as long as you get ahold of them ASAP! ive seen lots of injured hawks and owls go through our local high school biology teacher. F&G usually came in a couple of days to pick up the animals. good luck.

    Yes, I know, that is why i am desperately trying to get in toutch. One thing i did find though, was that i have to notify them within 5 days... Thats how much time i have to call them. I have been studying for a falconry liscence for about a year... I could shoot and try to take the test, and get over 70%. If I get a low score, i have to wait another month... Also, I cant find a sponsor... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Ok... I went through every single egg picture on this site:
    http://www.amonline.net.au/birds/gallery/eggs.htm
    and didnt find any eggs that looked like it. here is a kestrel egg:



    The egg I have is a little longer, not so round like aping pong ball...

    Its almost like this one:



    Only, the brown is a bit more smeared than blotchy, and the background part is a little creamyer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Why wpuld you want to propagate a nuisince like a bird of prey? They are already overpopulated in some areas and they kill your birds! Imo its better to destroy the eggs before you get more of these pests![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] these arent pests, they are quite uncommon here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I dont kill little cute birds in eggs! besides, hawks eat more mice and rabbits than anything else! they dont decimate the population of birds!

    Oh, and I have identified the eggs, I think [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    These lil guys are either:

    Lesser Nighthawks
    -or-
    Brewers blackbird [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    these guys dont eat other birds, the nighthawk just eats bugs and stuff, only it looks like a hawk or falcon [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    EDIT: and kestrels can barely eat baby feild mice, they're not going to hurt harmless sparrows [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
