    Well, I finally got to peek in the nest today where mama’s been incubating 5 eggs. Couldn’t see real good & wanted to hurry, but did see one egg left and several gaping mouths. Could be this one egg might not be viable – may be one that went through one of hard freezes we had here couple weeks ago. I will wait a day or two before I look again. YEAH!

    Oh, that one injured baby blue I was so worried about is probably in BB heaven – I have not seen him for two days now. So sad, but hopefully his siblings will thrive and fledge soon.

    Good to hear that you have a new brood also. I am kind of disjointed. We had that early nest and still no eggs.

    Exciting news Carol‼️ I was worried about the eggs freezing with all those low temperatures, but mama blue knows what she is doing. Four hatching out of five is still great. Congratulations!

    Who knows…. your blue with the wing problem might surprise you with a visit in a few weeks. Better yet, maybe it healed it’s self.

    That is good news Carol. I am not sure all of mine will make it either. One was laid and that night we had temps in the 20’s, but it is day 8 of the brooding cycle so we shall know soon.
    I am hoping the injured Blue survived and one day he will pay you a visit.
