Sad news today. A went into the yard just ahead of me this afternoon and found a dead baby robin out in the middle of the grass. We checked the nest and it is empty - and no wee robins in the bushes either (they were a bit young still to have jumped the nest). The parent birds were running back and forth on the roof, loudly crying - we must have just missed whatever happened. We buried the chick and the boys each said a few words. Sad boys.
