Sorrow for Mrs. Sparrow and her young family


image

Every day we’ve been checking out the small nest a determined sparrow created in an old hose rack near our home. She laid five speckled brown eggs and eventually one hatched. We were hoping to find a new hatchling soon but my wife recently discovered the tragic conclusion — an empty nest. No baby sparrow, no eggs, not even a tiny shard of shell. Sometimes nature can be so cruel.
