Bad news for the North Buffalo birding community: It doesn't look like our robins are going to make it.
We found an aqua-colored shell in the driveway a few days ago, which obviously isn't a good sign. Then the mother was nowhere to be found. I took a peek into the nest today and saw one small egg still there, but no one is keeping it warm.
Not being an expert at these things, I left the nest there. I guess I'll give it another week or so and see what happens, but it might be best to clean up and start over for the next tenant.
And the robin never even left a security deposit.
