I have observed a robin building a nest, outside my kitchen window, in a feeder attached to the side of my garage. The last time I saw her was April 28 in the afternoon. No observable activity since then. Today is May 1. Is it possible she has abandoned this nest, or could she return to lay her eggs?

I suspect it has been abandoned, for whatever reason. It is my experience that, for robins, if the location is reused, another nest will be built on top of the old one. Keep watching!
