On day 6 (Saturday) the baby Eastern Bluebirds just started opening their eyes. They are also starting to make little bird noises letting the parents know that they are hungry.
There clearly (at least to me) is a runt of the family. It’s the one on the far right of the picture. The others appear to be a little more dominant and are always begging for food. Hopefully the smallest one can get the food it needs while competing with the others.
That brings me to the parents. They are in full swing now in feeding the babies. The male has turned into a feeding machine. He is diving in the grass, hunting by my pond, and taking whatever meal worms he can get in order to feed the babies.
Here he is with a freshly caught spider.
