Thank you Anthony Zemba!  You were right! The fledglings were not affected by the cold but, sadly, were destroyed by a parasitic larvae. I didn't see it on the birds or in the nest when monitoring, but once I was
 sure they were all dead, I lifted the nest and saw many of the larvae "worms" under the nest! I will now start over and add the wire mesh bench as you suggested. If anyone knows how to make this wire mesh bench, please
email me....thank you.
