Tree Swallows started feeding my baby blue birds this morning. Is that unusual? I haven’t seen the male blue bird in the last 24 hours. Yesterday the female blue bird was in the nest on top of the babies. I haven’t seen the female blue bird today. Would the blue birds abandoned their babies? I’m fearful of opening the bird house because I don’t want to harm the babies. Any help would be useful.
Sorry to say that I was mistaken and the swallows were not feeding the baby blue birds. The swallows keep flying around the house and go in and out but the bluebird parents are no where to be found and all 5 baby blue birds are dead. I have no idea how this happened. The babies were about 10 days old. So sad.
Thank you so much for responding. I am new to this forum so not sure where to post to the main forum. Surprisingly, the parents of the dead bluebirds returned late this afternoon. I will be monitoring them to see their activity.
