Had an early nest with 5 eggs, only one egg hatched I call him super baby. He fledged last Tuesday. Mama blue immediately started building a new nest the next day. Today 6 days after super baby fledged she laid her 1st egg of brood #2. I’m a little worried about the next brood since only 1 hatched last nesting. On the last nest she had 4 eggs, was incubating and a 5th egg showed up 3 days later. Was that the egg that hatched….who knows, time will tell. We did have some freezing nights, but I had insulation around the box so I don’t think the eggs froze.
Thanks Dana, Mama blue laid egg #2 today. Yesterday I put up the sparrow spooker, today I put on a wren guard. Those pesky wrens are in the area. I’m hoping they get busy with their own nests and leave other nesting birds alone. Grrrr.
