And then there were three.
Yesterday was the eighth day since I discovered a robin and her four eggs in a nest in our holly tree.
I was outside in the afternoon yesterday when I saw the robin fly off her nest. There were only three eggs inside.
I know it’s not a great photo, but trust me, there are only three eggs.
I read that robins’ eggs have predators — squirrels, snakes, crows, and blue jays. I saw a couple of blue jays in our backyard a few days ago. I don’t know if one of them got an egg. I don’t know if they’ll come back for more.
For now, mama robin still sits on her remaining three eggs.
I’m feeling quite sad.
