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.
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.
