At our new home up in the top corner on our front patio a mama Swallow has made a nest, we assume she has been coming back to that same nest for quite sometime. She flys around (with I assume the male) and always returns at night . Last night we noticed an egg on the ground and a bunch of feathers , she didn't come home last night. Will she come back? how log should we wait before we try to help the eggs? why would an egg be pushed out and her gone??

Also there was a brown Thrasher hanging around this morning I do not know if that had anything to do with it .
