The vast spectrum of emotion

And then there were none.

The bluebird eggs are gone.
After sobbing in the yard, I came in, dried my eyes and checked on Penny.
And then there were two.
A newborn rat was laying next to her.
As of 10:20 pm, there are two.
Updates later...

Huh? What happened to them???

The nest was a bit torn up, so I assume a raccoon, squirrel or snake got them.

So sad. We really need more bluebirds in this world.

Are the parents still around to use your new box?

I was gone most of the day, and it's been raining so I haven't seen much of anyone. But I'm hopeful.
