Life is not a Disney Movie

Remember this pretty little momma bird? She built a nest outside out bathroom window and had two eggs. It was fun to check on her throughout the day. But on Sunday morning I went to look at her and found an empty nest with only a couple of egg shells.

It is really sad. Yes, I cried. Yes, it is nature. Birds like this one have multiply clutches of eggs a year because so few make it to adulthood. It's still sad. A lonely Blue Jay feather on the nearby ground makes me think that is what got the eggs. I've left her nest for now. I know she will not be back in it, but I still look at it occasionally. It is a beautiful nest.
