The Bluebird Family Prospers

The Bluebird family continues to do well. We have seen mom and dad bluebird with four babies. It looks like there may be two males and two females.

The mother bluebird has begun to build another nest in the bluebird nestbox by our sunporch. The baby bluebirds are perching on the beam right by the nestbox.

We put mealworms down on the sidewalk near the sunporch and call the bluebirds. The baby bluebirds won’t land until mom or dad has checked it out. What is really funny is that after mom and dad fly away the babies will eat the mealworms by themselves, but as soon as mom or dad lands, the babies will start chirping and open their mouths real wide!

As noted in my prior post-the bluebirds fledged on Sunday, June 7th.  On Wednesday, June 10 we saw that Mom and Dad bluebird were around, so we fed them mealworms and watched as Mom loaded them up in her mouth:

She then flew into a very large sycamore tree:

After seeing where she landed we were able to get a few pictures of the bluebird babies:
