Bluebird eggs in nest – picture

Eastern Bluebird eggsI took my camera with me today to get a picture and an exact count on the number of eggs in the nest. There are five eggs. This means the last egg would have been laid on the 17th so they could hatch as early as April 30.

I found a great site for bird lovers to learn about birds of all kinds. It is maintained by Cornell and has so much information including live nest cams that constantly monitor selected bird nests. The URL for this website is http://www.birds.cornell.edu/.
