    Missed another fledging. My 5 have left the nest box. I was away at the daughter’s for a Mother’s Day lunch and returned to an empty box. Oh Well… I will clean it tomorrow, let it dry and put it back on the pole for the next brood.

    I hope that all of the ladies enjoyed a nice Mother’s Day.

    Congrats! Mine are Day 14 and I’m off work starting Tuesday. It will be hard to pry me off the patio though I have so much to do!

    Randy, average day to fledge is somewhere between 16-19. I have had them go later and some people have had them go earlier.

    Randy this brood was 17 – exactly as predicted on the Cornell U spreadsheet. All of my fledging for the past 10 years have been 16-17 days mostly 17.

    Got it, David; just interested in your average days-to-fledge. Nice to see your consistent pattern.

    My fledging is always 17 days – I believe only one time I had them fledge at 16 days. I am in Mid-Missouri.

    David congrats on the fledging! My new pair of bluebirds has just started building a nest. Can’t wait for the eggs to start arriving!

    Mine left today too!!! I missed everything!!! Only way I knew is that the mealworms were transported next door instead of to the box. Empty nest syndrome once again!
