After our good Robin parents raised two sets of chicks, three each in this nest,
they decided that it was too gross to raise a third generation in it. That tells you something, how nasty it must have been.
So, one early morning, I looked out on the deck and saw this!
There was nothing there the night before. I forgot to close the sun umbrella. It was amazing how fast they built a nest in there.
I felt so very bad that I could not let them have their nest, it was just not possible.
Happy was intersted in the nest too.
For a couple of hours after I've closed down the umbrella, and removed the nest, the two Robins came by with hay in their beaks, and a confused look, tilting their heads this way and that. So sorry!
