Abandoned Robin nest

Poor robin's egg, abandoned by it's parents. I don't know why they gave up on their nest. Too many grackles around? Lost a parent? The rainy weather? I don't know if the bluejays ever reached fledgling stage - we had a very bad rainstorm one night and I never saw them again, and maybe the same happened to the robins.

In any case, this forlorn little egg just about breaks my heart, and I'm trying my best not to draw any comparisons to my ridiculous thesis turmoil and swift-approaching deadline.
