Sad robin news
They didn't make it. I found at least three of the four babies on the ground underneath the nest, dead. I don't know how they got there - whether it was the cat from across the street, a first-time mother robin dumbly pushing them out long before they were ready, or what happened. She was gone too. I'm just glad the girls didn't really know they were there so I don't have to explain it to them!
