Look who came to visit



Talk to the wing child.

DAD, dad...




What a mouth full.




Mr. and Mrs. B have returned, and they brought the little ones with them. I saw 3 out of the four that fledged. Only saw the young ones this one day and haven't seen them since, but I have seen Mr. and Mrs. B, they've built another nest in the box and tonight when I checked, there were two eggs. Hopefully we'll see the fledglings more often when the new brood hatches. They are supposed to help with the feeding according to my bird book.

Passing storms


These were swirling above me, kinda creeped me out a little. :-)




Just some really awesome clouds with a storm that passed by this morning. I even got lucky and caught a few lightning bolts. Not an easy task in the daytime with the lightning trigger. A whole lot of luck was involved.

Final Day





These were the last pictures I got of our Bluebirds. Taken on Thursday, June 10th. The babies flew from the nest box the next day. I've seen Mr. and Mrs. B keeping a close eye on the nest box, chasing away the sparrows that get close. Hopefully the will lay their second brood in the box. I haven't seen the little ones yet. Hope they come around.

Bluebird Update--Days 9, 10 and 11




Eyes still closed.


Eyes now open. What a difference a day makes.



They are growing fast and starting to get feathers and open their eyes. It won't be long before they all fly away. *sniff*sniff*


According to my bird book, Mr. and Mrs. B should have another brood and could possible build a nest in the same nesting box. I will have to dispose of the first one as soon as possible after the babies have fledged.
