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.
