      So last week Wednesday another (the third) female showed up and she has stayed! They were going back and forth between two boxes and I didn’t think she was ever going to start building a nest. She started on Saturday in one box then moved to a different box on Sunday and now has a complete nest in that second box. Waiting on eggs now….

      Here she was yesterday…

        Nice picture, Donna. What is it with these birds starting a nest in box and then switch to a different one? My first pair (had papa 6 years with about 3 different females) always finished the nest which they began & laid the eggs in it. The 2 years with my current couple they built 2 or 3 complete nests in different boxes before choosing one. Of course, this cuts down on available true time, and they just have 2 nestings instead of 3 like my first 6 years. All are different I guess!

        Love my blues!

          So glad she stayed, Donna! That male has really been trying hard to find someone, hasn’t he? Sounds like they’re finally settling in. Sure hope so!



            I had a male last summer that lost his mate. He hung around that box for almost two weeks. Finally a female came around.

            Glad your results were of the same.
