Yesterday at 3:00 pm I went out and checked on Momma and the babies. All was OK with Momma keeping them warm.
At 5:30 pm my wife went out to look at them and what she found was very disturbing. We thought, being on top of the electric box they would be safe from everything. Wrong.
The nest was on the ground and three of the four babies as well as Momma were gone. The fourth baby was dead lying on the deck.
I don't know what happened, but I can only guess that maybe a Hawk or some other predatory bird in the area found it easy pickings.
It's very sad.
