Saddness in Academyville


Today at 2:50 PM I discovered that our Robin babies were apparently dead of hypothermia. We had another Spring snowstorm… second one in two days… and they are stiff and wet in the wet nest. After reviewing the videos that have been taken with the BirdCam, it looks like they stopped responding to the parents about 10 AM, even though they tried repeatedly to warm and feed them.

So sad. It was a delight to watch them grow.
