Finch Not Sitting on Nest

I have a zebra finch that laid an egg. Two days later at 12 midnight I was refilling the food pot and the finch left the nest when it saw me. It never returned until 5 in the morning. Is there a problem?

Eggs can remain fertile for a week. The birds will sit on the eggs when all have been laid. Once all are laid, they should be sitting on the eggs most of the time. If they are unattended for more than 30 minutes, that is not a good sign. If there is another nest, you can try putting the abandoned eggs in there.
