The 4 babies from the first nesting here fledged this weekend–last one left the box today. They’re hanging out in gigantic oak trees across the street, with the parents making frequent bug runs to the babies.
Messiest box I’ve ever seen from bluebirds. Even messier inside with the poo than tree swallows! There was even a huge amount of poo on outside of box, entire front side was caked with it running down from the hole! It was a chore to clean, but it’s done and ready for another nesting, if that occurs.
Three cheers for new blues!! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!!!
