No more robins

Sad news. Egg shells were scattered on the ground underneath the bush where the robins were nesting. A peek inside the nest revealed no eggs and no babies. The soft grass lining the nest had been pulled up. Most likely another bird, perhaps a crow, discovered the nest and ate the eggs. We'll wait and see if the robins come back to try a third time.


  1. Cece thats so sad the baby robins DIED:( ! I hope that the robins do come back and try again.

  2. Good news, Alicia! The parents did try again. This time they built a nest in our treehouse and hatched 4 babies. They just flew away last week. I think that's probably it for the summer.
