    Love my blues!

      David- they’re really looking good! Mine are getting close too. Fledge today should be Tuesday. I hope Susan’s are doing well, too! Hope all of ours fledge successfully!

      I missed another fledging on Friday. There was a lot of activity with the 2 parents bringing food to the young ones. But I did not expect them to go until Saturday. I did see a lot of “peeking” out of the box by several of the young but they did not venture out while I sat there and took these pictures. All in all I must have spent 4 hours watching the box and taking a few snaps but did not see them go.

      On Saturday morning I looked out to see if the parents were watching for the first ones to leave the box but they were nowhere in sight. I waited until 11:00 AM before I decided that I needed to see what was happening so I could get on with mowing the lawn. I found the box empty. So they must have fledged after I used the grill on the deck around 5:00 PM on Friday. Cleaning the nestbox today and letting it dry before putting it back up for the winter occupants.

        David- Yay! So glad they fledged! Absolutely love the pics! Mine fledged this past Wednesday. Hope ours all come back to visit! Congratulations!
