sad news

Eden has been so excited to find a new egg in the nest each day. There was a total of 3 eggs as of yesterday.

This morning, on her way to school, she checked on the eggs (like she does often) only to come running back to the house almost in tears.

"The eggs are gone! All 3 of them are GONE!"

Her heart was broken and now mine is too. I was so looking forward to photographing new baby birds. And it was so endearing to see how protective Eden was of those eggs, making sure the neighborhood kids got just close enough to look but NOT touch. And now they have disappeared.

Maybe a squirrel got to them? I'd love to think that the mother bird was somehow able to move them to a new nest, higher up, but I don't even know if that is possible. We sure are sad about it though.
