The one bird that had hatched Saturday is no longer in the nest. Either it matured very quickly and went off to bird college already, or nature took its darker course. Since none of the other eggs has hatched yet, I’m guessing the one that did was premature. I feel a little guilty because whenever I go close to the window to look out, the mother flies away…I’m afraid I made her leave her new chick unprotected and some predator got to it. Do birds eat other birds? Well, they shouldn’t.
