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!

Today the five bluebird babies successfully fledged. Last night the parents were very active with their trips in and out of the nestbox.  The babies kept looking out, but kept going back down into the box.

Here is a picture from last night showing mom and dad with one of the bluebird babies looking out.
