Remember that really strong wind we had last Wednesday night? Well, it took down the nest…. Here’s the sad news that I received from Dave Thomas:
The nest blew down in the winds Wednesday night. I found two dead babies on the ground the next morning, both apparently healthy and growing. Neighbors saw the adults flying around, as if searching and perhaps in mourning. One carried food in its beak, ready to feed the young. It’s a tough world for wildlife!
