Pigeon's baby - Short before disappearing

This very young pigeon didn't live very long at all. It suddenly desappeared this morning less than 24h after its birth.

Its parents took care of their 2 eggs/chicks (except for 5 minutes when I took this picture yesterday). But I suppose a predator (magpie, sparrowhawk or crow) kidnaped both chicks as soon as the second one was born. No cat could access this place (a window sill from an upper floor on a rear yard in Paris). Life is cruel.
