There is a perfectly made (robins?) nest in a forsythia bush outside my family room window. It is only about 3 feet off the ground, and as of yesterday was empty.

All morning long I have been sitting in my chair just inside where this nest is, and watched a constant array of squirrels checking it out. They go right up to it..see it's empty and leave.

The bottom line is...should any bird lay any eggs in the nest...they don't stand a chance of survival do they?

Any eggs would likely be eatn by the squirrels.
