Earlier this year, a Robin that had built a nest on my infrequently used porch abandoned the nest and left four eggs behind. She was apparently distraught over the human activity. Fast forward a couple months - I return to the porch to discover that she had returned to the nest and had two chicks that were about to fledge, which they did. I checked out the nest to discover that she had added to the nest and started over again. The original eggs are encased in nesting material at the bottom of the nest.
