We are now on day eleven for the Eastern Bluebird babies (I’m also showing a picture of day ten since I didn’t post yesterday).
All 5 babies (I counted) are doing well. Both parents are really becoming excellent insect hunters. I suppose they have no choice as the little birds are growing so quickly.
I offer the adults mealworms twice a day, once early in the morning, and once in the late afternoon. This morning I was running a little late in setting out the mealworms and I noticed the unmistakeable sound of the Eastern Bluebird, almost calling out to me letting me know I was a little late in the feeding.
To give you an idea of how fast they grow, look at the baby in the first picture (and notice the feathers growing in) compared to the previous day.
