we had been watching these two all weekend. it was warm, they were active, we would cover up the nest before nightfall. monday was bringing rain so i got the wheelbarrow out to cover the area and it seemed like there had been no movement in nest all morning. i reached in and they were cold. they had not survived the night. i brought them in to warm them up. four hours later, still nothing. i wish i had done something sooner when they were active. maybe i spent too much time around the back garden cleaning up – keeping mama away? either way, i’m sad. i fell in love with these two littles.
