Welcome to my Blue Bird Blog! I'm documenting a pair of Blue Birds who nested in my nest box this spring. The first brood of 5 babies is about to fledge!
Mama builds the nest!
The completed nest....ready for eggs!
Mom and Dad at the feeder. Mom is reminding him that Mother's Day is soon and he'd best be taking care of her while she sits on the nest!
Mama lays 5 eggs!
4 of the 5 eggs have hatched!
Mommy found a crunchy spider - yum!!!!
Mama delivers a tasty treat!
It's a contest to see who can get the biggest treat! Dad wins!
Got some great wing action!
The babies are getting bigger - note the worm on one baby's head!
The eyes are starting to open!
They're looking like birds and the house is getting really messy!!!
Mom delivers a treat to a waiting baby!
Dad has a juicy worm for Jr!!
Dad is doing his best to keep the nest clean by carrying out waste - this is called a fecal sac! Oh boy!! Luckily, dad takes it across the street and leaves it someone else's yard!!
Hello baby blue bird! Are you ready to come out and see the world????
