Murder Most Fowl?

Well, I'm deeply saddened.
Something happened to the birdies. :(

Yesterday, there were four.



When I left for work this morning, there was a parent bird on the nest.
Came back for lunch and since there was no one there, went to take a pic.



Empty!
I have no idea what happened. As far as I know, birds do not move their chicks like mammals. There were no bodies on the ground, but if they were pushed/fell out, some animal could have eaten them. My old cat once climbed up the logs and ate the birds, so it is possible some neighboring cat could have done the same. Sigh.
Sometimes nature is so cruel.

Yes, I was really bummed yesterday.
But, I'm over it.
Next year, new babies.

That is so sad. My heart aches for the babies. Also, today I saw a hawk catch a bird after a long, acrobatic mid-air chase. The sounds the victim made, even as it was being pursued were agonizing. I'm too sensitive for that stuff.

I've seen hawks strike prey on the ground.
that's just nature doing its thing.

so sad, robins don't move the babies---probably a crow/bluejay saw the nest and took them out of it :(

I have to agree with you.
I saw a crow flying around today, probably looking for more lunchables.

Someone I talked to today also said it was most likely a crow.

Re: REVENGE
Nope, worse :-p

I guess my wording was incorrect. I meant that, like the pic I used, that the robin parents beat the crap out of whatever reak havoc with their family. Not likely ... just wishful thinkin'
