    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.

    Second egg some time this afternoon

    It has really been quiet around the bird house and feeder area for the past day or so. Possibly because I took the feeders down to clean them yesterday and didn’t get them back up until an hour ago.

    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.

    Yay……I hope you get egg #5 tomorrow. Then maybe #6……I have never had a nest with six eggs yet. Thanks for sharing your photos.

    We now have 5 eggs in the nest. Looks like an April 28 hatch date.

    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.
