Mr. Bluebird Feeds Mrs. Bluebird

The male bluebird takes a piece of mealworm to mom.  Judging by how wide her mouth is open she is expecting a big meal!

Mom bluebird continues to incubate the eggs in the nestbox which is a good thing since the temperatures have dropped into the 40’s and we even had a few snow flakes today.

The bluebirds continue to stay very close to the nestbox and he chases away any birds that get too close.

Looks like mom bluebird has completed her brood. There are five 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.
