Robins

We have some robins who made a nest in the eaves of the pigs’ portable shade hut.

And the fledgling left the nest.

I didn’t have the heart to photograph the mama cat snatching it for her kitten

  1. Rachel, you kill me.

    Such a sweet story – I was all rainbows & butterflies with the egg picture. The sweet little birdie and a story about new beginnings…and then a drastically dismal ending.

    Well, sweet dreams to me.

    Love you!
