They were hungry little things and every time I looked out at them they had their necks stretched up as high as they would go looking for mom to feed them.
Friday I came home from work and I found this.
Not the best picture but that is the nest. An obviously empty nest. Now considering the fact that there is no way those baby birds were ready to fly and seeing the condition of the nest I know something got them. The way the nest is sitting in the tree, it appears that something heavy must have been on top of it because it's sort of pushed down over the one branch.
Now mind you I have no proof but I found it very odd that last night I found this guy sitting on my front porch.
Very bad picture but I wanted to get a shot of him before he got all the way across the street and out of view. I've never seen this cat in my yard before let alone sitting on my porch. He was also looking up at the tree before he realized I spotted him. I wonder if he thought that the nest might have refilled itself and he could get another snack.
