Sooo Disappointed

Unfortunately I won't be posting any more pictures of our robin family. We were gone to my daughter's track meet yesterday, and just as we arrived home my oldest son was watching the female carry away the last of the eggs. I'm not sure what she did with them, but one of them dropped and broke in the driveway. The man delivering my youngest son's papers had dropped the bundle right under her nest so I'm thinking the thud and commotion may have terrified the poor thing.

I am so disappointed as I was really looking forward to watching the eggs hatch one by one. Nature can be very entertaining and interesting, but it can be sad too.

I am disappointed to not be able to see the babies hatch but.......I hope the mother and eggs that are left are safe. Thanks for sharing.

So sorry to hear that Mrs Robin has moved her eggs from your porch. I was looking forward to watching the eggs hatch. My guess is she didn't move them very far away.
