I love bird watching, whether at the bird feeder or out on the trail.

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.

The female bluebird continues to build the nest. She has been working for three days and has brought quite of variety of dried grass and twigs to the box.  It is amazing how much material she will carry into the box each time. Once she had a huge mouthful and she was having a hard time getting through the opening. On the 6th attempt she started a fair distance away and headed full speed into the hole!

The bluebirds have finally decided on a box to build their nest in this year. They have chosen the one right outside our kitchen window so we will be able to keep an eye on them. This will be the fourth year we have had bluebirds nesting in our boxes. Over the coming weeks we will post updates on their progress.
