It is going to be a busy fledging week from May 10 – 15. We have the first egg of the season on a cool, misty day. I did not get the photo of the birds on the shepherd’s hook this morning but that is what prompted me to take a look in the nestbox.
Thanks Judy. Yes It looks like it is going to be a pretty good year for the Bluebirds. The third egg happened about an hour ago. I looked in the box when I put the mealworms out around 8:30 and there were still only 2 in the nest.
Incubation has started. I have seen the female sticking her head out of the nestbox opening several times today when I have gone into the back yard. It is going to be cooler this evening – high 30’s but they should be okay.
