    Happy to see you got the first egg now. Always exciting to find. Yippie. Good luck with your second round and all the fledglings from the first round. I know they are loving the live mealworms.

    We are up to 4 eggs now but it started to rain toward the nest, so i did’t get any new photos today. Will try again tomorrow when there should be a full house of 5.

    We are just going to have 4. She is incubating so I expect the 4 to hatch around July 6 – after all of the fireworks. With a little luck and warm weather we could possibly get a 3rd sitting in before fall.
    A friend in a support group here in Stafford says that he already has a third hatch of bluebirds and could have a 4th nesting if his are true to form. He indicated that he has had 4 nestings in 2 of the past 3 years. He must be doing something right.

    nest with 4 eggs from yesterday

    Nice picture David. My pair of bluebirds got an early start this year. I would be very excited to get a third nesting. My nest #2 is slightly ahead of yours. I’m having a lot of fun watching them. Happy birding‼️
