newborn birdies found nested within our grill *update*

Some, if not all, did not survive.
We went to look at them today and there lay three of them.
Something (another bird) must have squezzed in thru the hole and got to them because the way we found them in was not good.
I think there were five born so perhaps mama took two to safety.
I am really upset about this. I just do not understand life sometimes. Why don't they get a chance to live? Why! They were all nestled in their comfy nest and then everything changed in a horrifying way, I can only imagine. It just is not fair. Innocent lives just starting out, gone. There are murderers and rapists walking the streets, yet these little lives were literally eaten away within a week. I understand the survival of the fittest and the food chain, but my heart aches for the ones who had to suffer that way. I just don't understand.
It take me back to when we lost some of the kittens from the last litter. It is called fading kitten syndrome, but I call it complete heartbreak.

Oh, this is so sad. Did it look like an animal had gotten them - like a cat or raccoon? I have a robin in our yard that just built a nest in the lowest branch of the tree only a few feet off of he ground. I know that something will get into her nest. I have been thinking of ways to guard it.
