Caption: I have some sad news this morning -- I went out to check them again, fully expecting to see all 5 babies hatched, and found the nest empty -- cleaned out. I'm sure, where the nest is located, that snakes would not be likely to reach it, so I would have to conclude that crows or some other winged predator got them. I'm sorry to have to report that this story did not end as I anticipated. Thanks for all your interest!
