      Hi all,
      All 5 bluebird eggs in my nest box hatched over memorial day weekend! The parents have been busily feeding them. I’m stoked!

        Great news Dana. Do you remember/know how long it took for the eggs to hatch after Mama was brooding them?

          Good to hear Dana. Congrats on being a good bird landlord!

          Still waiting for my pairs to hatch. I’m thinking in the next week or two. Some just started laying.

            Dana, glad to hear all is going well with your blues. Nest one for my blues had 5 eggs, but only 1 hatched. Nest #2 had 5 eggs and 2 hatched, so I’m up by 100%, lol. Since there was only 1 fledgling from the 1St nest, I get to see it all the time following papa blue around the yard. Super cute.

              My 5 white eggs hatched yesterday, Friday June 2. It has been very hot (close to 90 degrees) for several days so I finally put my Styrofoam heat shield on their box. I am trying to get the bluebird parents (new pair) to eat mealworms like my previous pairs have always done, but they have not picked up on how good they are yet. This is very unusual for me as I have been feeding bluebirds live mealworms for lots of years. Main thing now is that the parents feed the babies bugs and that they fledge successfully. Good luck to everyone.
