accidentally damaged a woodpeckers "nest"

by Nathan
(Columbia county)

While doing some work on our property I bumped into a rotten tree with the tractor and a bird (type unknown) flew out and the tree broke. Well I inspected the area where the bird flew from and right where the tree broke is a hole and about 3 eggs. I don't have a clue on what to do. Should I call someone to come and try to save the eggs or will the mother come back? Who do I need to call? I don't know it this is an endangered bird or not any help on I identifying the bird would be great I can send a pic of the eggs if needed. Location Columbia County Georgia.

I would try to identify by the eggs and nest. Hopefully the mama will come back!
