Robin's Nest: Day 26 or day 12 since the birds' birth - An empty nest...
On Saturday morning there was a huge storm - I worried about the last bird that was on the nest. As soon as the rain stopped I went to see and found an empty nest.... I felt a bit sad and a bit happy as I know that nature has done its job, but I will miss the little birds in the nest. It is funny, mami Robin put 3 eggs, one each day for 3 days. And the 3 birds left the nest one each day for 3 days. In summary, the eggs took 15 days to hatch and the birds took 10 days to fly. Amazing!!!!
On Sunday, we were looking out the window and we saw mami Robin following another bird very closely. Soon we noticed that the bird being followed was rather big and chunky and did not fly very well - it was one of the baby birds learning to fly - It was so reassuring to know that they are well and still in my garden. I hope they stay!
