Bless This Nest

A couple weeks ago
Maddy and I noticed that a bird had built its
nest hidden in one of the bushes near our front door.
Upon closer inspection,
we noticed 4 itty bitty blue
with black/brown speckled eggs!

We were so excited and have been 
eagerly checking on the nest daily.

But . . . 
sad news to report. 
We never saw a mother bird and believe that a 
neighborhood cat must have done her in.
Plus, it's been very, very chilly here lately so
there is no way that the little birdy eggs
have been warm enough to develop.

We are kind of broken-hearted! :(

So sad. It would have been fun to watch those baby birds grow up. The circle of life...

So sad...
We had babies last year...
But nothing here yet.
Have a nice evening, my friend. : )
