Still no babies today. Momma is still incubating. I’ve had a terrible first year. This is 3rd Bb clutch and no babies. All the baby mockingbirds disappeared, im guessing predator. Only luck so far is some house Wrens that are on day 11 today, should fledge later this week. They are in a small bird house I have in my front yard tree.
Well today brings the 14th day since the eggs were laid. As of yesterday none had hatched. Really hoping they aren’t infertile again :(
Hahaha that’s funny! My neighbors have a lot of big bushes in their yard and the mockingbirds love them. This nest is about chest high in one of the bushes. Momma BB is incubating the 5 eggs today. It’s supposed to get 98 today :(
Some good new: 3 of the 4 Mockingbird eggs hatched today!
5 eggs today, they are going all out lol
4 eggs today. I love this pair of BBs. They always come by to greet me when I check the nest everyday. Probably actually telling me to leave but I like to think they are coming to say hi hahaha
Yeah I try to make sure I check it once a day while eggs are being laid just so I know for sure when she starts incubating, especially since I’ve had one clutch infertile. This may be the same pair too. We will see what happens, fingers crossed!
Mine must lay pretty early, 3 eggs today!
Yup there are two eggs today!
Hmm still just one egg today, could she skip a day or will they just lay one sometimes?
First BB egg was laid today!
Nope didn’t work. Not sure how to upload the photo.
Let’s see if this works. A picture of the young Bluebird I saw in the backyard.
Thank you Connie! Sad to hear about your experience as well. I hope next year is much better! I know I’ll be way more prepared lol.
Ahh okay I thought you were saying you banded your blues.
