Sad News


I am so sad to report that our little killdeer couple's nest was discovered and something (I really, really hope it was not my cat) took all the eggs. I went out two days after posting about them and discovered that they nest was empty. I was so sad for the killdeer mother who was walking around the field looking lost. They are no longer in the field, so I asume they have moved on. Maybe next year.

Oh, how very sad. There's nothing worse to look at than a mother searching for her eggs or babies. UGH! :( I'm so sorry. :(

That's too bad, what a bummer. Our tadpole died yesterday, so I guess we are on a roll this week.
