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. 😦
