Cat attack!

Jessica heard a thunk earlier today and found the bird nest that’s normally on the back porch light slightly askew. Robins built it when we first moved in, but a pair of finches have taken residence there in the recent weeks. I thought I saw them feeding hatchlings a couple of days ago, but never could get close enough to look inside.

The nest sits awkwardly on the lamp after the initial (presumed) attack.

Tonight after dinner, I saw the cat Joanna saw in the backyard earlier today, perched on the window ledge and getting ready to jump up into the nest. I shooed it away, but I think the damage was already done. I hope the little ones got away.

This is the part the finches added on to the existing nest, now upside down on the back porch.
