One baby robin had hatched that day
I had the most beautiful Robin's nest in my rhododendron bush.
I watched daily as it had 3 beautiful blue eggs in it. I watch Mommy and Daddy taking such good care.
I took pictures when I could when Mommy was gone to document the development.
It was such a beautiful thing to witness.
I have security cameras all around my home and one on the deck, where the nest was built.
At about 1 am a couple of nights ago, a neighbor’s cat stalked and jumped into the bush, knocking the nest to the ground, killing the two unhatched babies and one that just hatched that day.
This is just a warning that if you have a nest in a vulnerable location and have cats in the neighborhood, please take precautions.
Set up some sort of blockage or tarp to secure the sides. I was heartbroken.
