    Doing a happy dance here. Incubation started Tuesday so maybe chicks in a couple of weeks. Last year she was not successful and I’m hoping she has better luck this time.

    Ditto here David, in fact I see them do that at both boxes, in and out but no nesting material.

    Same here David and Connie. I seen a pair of bluebirds investigating my nestbox 2 days ago but no nest yet. It must still be too chilly, rainy? Although today and tomorrow suppose to be warmer here in Pa…60s and 70s. By the way, Gin congrats on the 5 bb eggs! :cow2:

    Great news, Gin! My pair have started a nest for no eggs for now, which is a good thing. We had a couple of very nice days but then a cold spell, but this week is supposed to be nice again. White eggs would be really exciting, since they are fairly rare.

    Planning to check for hatching today if I get a minute. Yes, Carol, I know white eggs are not typical. Seeing them is what prompted my happy dance!

    Thanks Tam. They all fledged also. Did I see that? Nope.

    They have started another nest but the HOWR are out and about. I am trying to keep them “occupied”.

    Cool Gin your white egg babies fledged. Know what you mean by keeping wrens occupied. They have a box here they want close to my BB’s, so I keep them occupied by removing their few sticks.

    Is that what you all are doing? Just continue to remove sticks? I don’t have a problem, but my friend does.

    Yes, right now my bluebird pair is trying to claim their 2nd nest box and I have both wrens and HOSP that want everything! I have four boxes in my area so I am trying to be sure the blues get at least one for their 2nd nesting! I have been trapping HOSP, removing sticks, etc. for the past two weeks almost. Sure hoping to see my new fledglings soon at the worm bowl – maybe in a day or two.

    Tammy, I was removing sticks but I got busy and she laid an egg. Guess how much I stomped around about that! Somehow that egg disappeared and a couple more showed up. She must be incubating infertile eggs because she’s been going at it for quite some time now.
