An Eastern Phoebe built a nest on my friend's porch light that is 
suspended from a chain more than 6 ft high.  She laid 4 eggs.  One day 
one of the eggs was smashed on the ground and another, different eggs 
was in it's place, probably that of a brown headed cowbird.  The next 
day all eggs were missing.  The nest was not disturbed and there was no 
sign of broken shells or anything else on the ground.

Can anyone solve the mystery of what happened to the eggs?
