Robin's Egg Blue
Sadly abandoned, eight robin's nests were removed from our deck eaves today. Four held beautiful robin's eggs, and four were empty. Whatever caused the robin to leave the nests is unclear.There seems to have only been one robin involved in the nest building to begin with, and only one was observed sitting on a nest. We gave her lots of space, but perhaps not enough. Tonight we are robin's egg blue:(~a little corny but true.
