Looks like mom bluebird has completed her brood. There are four blue eggs in the box.  She is spending more time in the nestbox and dad is usually nearby. Just a few minutes ago, while we were enjoying the beautiful day from the sunporch, dad flew to the ground, snagged a cricket and took it into the nestbox for mom.

While we wait the 12 to 16 days for the bluebirds to hatch we will write about our experience with the bluebirds over the past five years.

Mom bluebird laid her fourth egg this morning. She arranges them in the nestbox so that they are all touching.  Will there be a fifth tomorrow?

This morning mom laid the third egg.  Dad looks into the box and flaps his wing-he is so proud. We put meal worms on the walk near the bluebird nestbox and they both come to eat.  Will update tomorrow.

The second bluebird egg was laid this Tuesday morning.  I watched mom enter the house and 8:15 and exit at 8:55. I knew what that meant!  I was right-after inspecting the nest box with my dental mirror and flashlight I verified that egg #2 was present.

Today the the bluebird laid her first egg. We suspected that she had because the bluebirds were hanging around in the area most of the day-keeping an eye on the box.

Last week she worked on the nest until Wednesday-so that was 4 days of work.
