David, congrats on the new baby blues! But aren’t they unsightly looking when first born to be so beautiful around fledging time. Great pictures – Connie don’t give up – I thought I was not going to have any nestings but ended up coming home from a few days vacation and found 1 egg and now 5 are being incubated. There was no sign of even a nest when I left and was only gone 3 days.
I have not given up yet Carol. I read my journal from last year and a pair of BB took up residence on May 22 and started building a nest on the 23rd so there is still time for them to show up.
Our weather has improved, even though there is more rain on the way.
I took a 2 mile walk tonight and where I generally see them at the farm down the road there was not one to be found. I am hoping with the cold, wet weather we have been getting they have not shown up here in large numbers yet. Time will tell.
