Snake Raiding Bird's Nest - ?שילוח הקן

From The Up-loader: "found a bird’s nest in their front yard and decided to put a camera nearby to capture the moment when the eggs would finally hatch. Sadly, that moment never came after a sneaky snake found the nest and made the eggs its dinner."

Credit must be given to the sneak for waiting for the mother bird to leave, in accordance with the laws of Shiluach Hakan. Although the oriole is not Kosher to eat due to a lack of a Mesorah, it nevertheless is categorizes as a kosher bird where the Mitzvah of Shiluach Hakan may be fulfilled!
