Learning the Hard Way

I think my bluebirds have abandoned their nest. I thought I had done a pretty good job of backing off and not checking the nest too often. But one time I flushed her off the nest before peeking in. I probably should have waited until another time to peek in. I haven’t seen them around since then and don’t think they are sitting on the eggs. In fact, the second bluebird box across the road now has a nest with at least four eggs in it and the birds are sitting on them. I suspect these may be the same birds.

We’ve been blessed!!!

I peeked again today and there were two blue eggs in the nest in the bluebird house. We have been blessed. I’ll be posting along as the family progresses. I dare not peek too often. I understand that preditors can smell our footprints and may lead preditors to the nest.

(PS I wrote this two days ago and discovered today that it was still in draft mode. So for the record, the two eggs were discovered on April 14. )
