First thing every morning and every time I came back to my room, I would check on the progress of the nest:
The nest is complete.
Mommy warms the eggs
Discovered a third egg
when Mommy was away
Parents take turns
feeding the chicks
Squeaky little fluff balls!
On Thursday morning, I saw the chicks fluttering around outside the nest and by that afternoon, the nest was empty.
I could see a bit of blue of the one egg that never hatched peeking through. Left behind. Just like me. *sniffle*
And now every time I see a robin, I'm going to wonder if it is one of the parents or one of the chicks, all grown up. (^_^)
