    Cindy, I am very sorry for offending you. I am sorry if I sounded
    ugly to you, I didn't mean it that way. All I was trying to say is
    that sometimes birds laying eggs happens and people are scared of
    what to do. Usually going on-line helps those that don't have alot
    of experience. GreyLady is right and is very knowledgable as well
    as me. she knows alot about birds too. Sometimes I come off
    alittle strong. Don't go away from this site. we DO want to help
    you. Again, I am sorry if I hurt your feelings... Connie
