Should I move a robins nest

Should I move a robins nest that I found after I cut off a limb from an ovehanging bush? One egg broke, two are still in tact. I've seen the mom nearby...

Can you put it back quickly before the mom forgets about it and builds another nest?

I would not move it unless I could move it a few feet at a time maintaining about the same environment (amount of shade) each time. Wait a few days and observe that mom has settled onto the nest again between each move.


States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.
