Yesterday was the eleventh day since I discovered a robin, her nest, and four eggs in my holly tree.
I had a very bad feeling about mama robin and her eggs. Being a coward, I sent Mark into the backyard to check on everything.
The news is not good. The nest was empty and the robin was nowhere in sight.
I know that the environment hosts miraculous events every day, but right now I think nature sucks.
I’ll miss you mama robin. I hope you have better luck with your next brood. I’m sorry my holly tree didn’t protect you and your eggs.
