ugh

Unfortunately, it appears that some sort of predator found the nest overnight Sunday into Monday and took all the chicks. Damnit. I was worried some about that chance, the nest wasn’t in a high, hard to see location, and something found it.

It was very much a shock to go check it this morning. I was first thinking since I saw neither parent in or around the nest that they must be out hunting for food, then I got the unpleasant sight of emptiness in the nest. Just yesterday I had looked in at the young chicks who still couldn’t open their eyes, marveled at how they squirmed around some, maybe sleeping or maybe just waiting to hear their parents come back and feed them more food.
