random bored

so i had a nest of robin red-breast babies in my backyard right outside my bedroom window (which was really cool because i could lay in bed in the mornings and watch them) but today they left the nest. i was wondering-do you think mommy birds get sad when its time for their babies to leave the nest?? lmao i was a little sad because now all i have is an empty nest so i wonder if she was sad too.
oh and does anyone know if they will come back to their nest tonight? if not, i want to take the nest down but i dont want to leave any birds homeless. lmao

  • Idk, but I would leave it there for a couple of days just in case they do come back or another little robin family wants to move in lol.

  • The mother may return to it next year, or another robin may. My grandpa had a robin's nest that was used a couple years in a row in one of his trees.

    Well, until the black birds came in and destroyed it. :-(

  • Awwww...
    that was so sweet.

    I doubt they get sad though, seeing as they kick them out with out even so much as a cell # to call in case the run into trouble...LOL

    Lord, I hope ppl. understand that wa sjust a joke.

  • No ,animals lose that instinct once the hormones stop flowing.I think primates care though just like us.
