12:00 noon: The “parents” (below) were attentive and protective!! The surrogate grandmother (me) sat on the patio hoping to see a baby fledge. (Took dozens of pictures.) I felt compelled to check the nest but was cautious and quick!!
5:20 PM: As soon as I got home from my volunteer job, I checked the image on the TV and found the babies are gone!! So I climbed the ladder for the picture of the empty nest.
