I'd be boiling mad over that too. Unfortunately (at least in the US) the rules of the game are if the tree is on your property you can do whatever you want to - which strangely covers limbs that hang over onto your property from the tree next door. There is one limb from behind us that hangs way over our back yard and we could legally cut it down - the limb, not the tree.
Hopefully Mama Bird wasn't too upset over the commotion and was able to get her babies weaned and taught them to fly before everything was cleaned up. Did you neighbor say if she has seen them since?
We had some men trimming limbs at our house one day and I was arguing that I didn't want a certain tree touched because the squirrels were nesting there. This (oooh, can't think of a nice word!) MAN laughed at me and said he'd been doing that and hadn't seen any squirrel eggs yet. Oh, I wanted to slap him up side the head! I just gave him a dirty look and walk away.
Hope the birds made it okay - post and let us know if she found any sign of them afterward.
