Update: Robin’s Eggs

Only a week after discovering four robin’s eggs in a nest at my mom’s house, tragedy befell them.  I discovered this lone egg…stuck inside the half-shell of another.  The other eggs were completely gone–taken by a crow (we guess).  When I slipped the half-shell off this whole egg I was surprised to find there was a beak peeking out–and it was moving.

Unfortunately, with no help from its mama and no warmth–and considering it had been pecking through a shell only to find itself inside another shell for God knows how long…the little robin gave up.  My mom discovered it this morning–motionless.

Sometimes nature breaks my heart.  😦

Today we visited Maw Maw’s house…and while trimming back Benjamin’s “Rose-of-Sharon Playhouse,” we made a discovery!

Four beautiful robin’s eggs…
