Life Writing | The Perils Of Life In Nature

After yesterday's Earth Day posting, of the three beautiful brightly blue colored robins eggs, today's posting is not a happy one. 

On my walk to the garage this morning to put away some of the last remnants of Christmas I saw a blue egg laying on the grass below the nest and my heart pieces sunk a bit.  Sure enough, the nest was raided overnight and the eggs are gone.  Darn Crows.

I am always in awe at how birds build their nests...WITHOUT HANDS.  And hopefully, the robins will get another nest made later this spring better hidden from their predators and I can see the baby littles scamper around my yard along side of the baby bunnies.  Currently, there are four large rabbits running around in my yard so their warren must be close by.
