Two days ago the Dallas/Fort Worth area made national news when severe storms rolled through the area. We had Tornados. We had hail. We had thunder and lightning. In a couple of places there was significant amounts of damage.

The worst of the storm missed our neighborhood, but there were still some causalities. These two House Finch eggs were found broken on the sidewalk the next morning, clearly victims of the severe weather.

No embryos were visible in the egg contents indicating that incubation had only recently begun.
