There are 3 eggs missing from a sparrow nest built outside of my
house.  There are no shells or any other signs of
mischief/destruction, but they are gone.  Is it possible for a mother
sparrow to carry eggs away to another location and if not, what might
be the other possible reason(s) for their disappearance?
There is no answer at this time.

Squirrels sometimes steal eggs from birds' nests. I saw it happen once.

Raccoons may dine on them and some snakes eat eggs.

Reportedly digsalot-ga will eat ANYTHING.

I wonder if he lives in your neck of the woods?
