Sad Repercussion

For the last couple of years this nest, sitting on the eaves trough, has been home to several sets of families. Last year I wrote a couple of posts about the families which can be found here and here, with a follow up here.

This year again, the same nest, became home to yet another set of Robins.

Yesterday, I noticed little beaks standing out from inside the nest and mama Robin hanging over the beaks.

So, I thought to myself, soon these chicks would be emerging out and I would be able to take a few more photos.

NOT SO!

We had a rain storm last night and today this is what I found.

The nest was blown off the trough and no signs of any chicks. 😥

Interesting that this nest made it through several bad storms occupied by a few families, and then in one big blow, during a rain storm, all was gone.

Just a sign of how fragile life can be.

I was feeling sad until I read Buster's comment. I hope they survived somehow.

Very sad on the surface- but in my experience these little creatures are extremely hardy and very resourceful otherwise they'd already be extinct. Swallows have been nesting under my eves since early April and each time I knock down their nests they circle around and rebuild until I finally give in and let them win! Beautiful photos that also excite discussion Cam.

Poor little animals, let's hope they survive, life is certainly very fragile. We are here today but tomorrow we are not sure.
