Subject: [CT Birds] robin question
For the past two years I have had a robin nesting in my front
rhododendron bush- it's very thick, so it provides good cover. Not sure if
it's the same returning bird, but the nest has been in the same location in
the bush.
I can watch it from the front window. However after the eggs are laid, the
next day , the eggs are all gone. I figure a small local predator has
watched it, and then takes the eggs.
My question is - If this is the same nesting many years will it
continue to build a nest in the same location, when its eggs are taken?
Does it remember from year to year, that its eggs were taken?
