Last season I was asked to take over a second bluebird monitor route from another volunteer who was unable to complete the season. It’s happened again this season. So, if you hop over to my bluebird journal – you’ll see more than double the number of nest boxes I’m reporting on.
It was an exciting day today. Last week I had 1 route and 2 bluebird eggs. Today I have 2 routes, 13 bluebird eggs and 4 bluebird nestlings! A bluebird explosion!
And Ricky and Lucy are flying aces! In and out and all over hunting for insects to feed hungry babies. We had a frosty night a couple of nights ago. While I wondered if Lucy would be able to keep the babies warm, I was not too worried. Mother Nature is resilient and as I always say, “The birds know what to do.”
