The female Robin nesting on my front porch nesting shelf laid her egg on the 19th, and temps have been below normal ever since. She has not added any eggs, and has not spent a ton of time on the one she had laid. I'm assuming the really lousy weather is forcing them to hold off incubating and adding eggs? She's still coming to the nest and sitting on the egg from time to time. She's not abandoned it. I'm not hearing or seeing a ton of activity from robins anywhere on the block these last few days. We're around 10 to 12 degrees below normal and are even expecting wet snow tonight. The colder than average weather is expected to last-- with a couple of days' reprieve-- at least into the first week of May.
