Robins with two nests

Asked May 10, 2019, 12:25 PM EDT

We have a roof over our deck and a robin built several nests, which I understand is common. However, they laid eggs in two of the nests (two in each). They definitely belong to the same robins because I've seen her hop from one nest to the other. I didn't see anything online about why she would've done this. Any thoughts?
