Eastern Bluebird Siblings Waiting On Mealworms

I’m a little late in posting this picture. I actually took the picture on August 12, but I guess I never created a post about it.

None of these pictures I’m going to share are that great, but since I haven’t posted in a while, and I’ve witnessed something I think is a little unusual, I hope you’ll bare with me. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I put out live mealworms for […]

Male And Female Eastern Bluebird Parents In Afternoon Light

On June 2, I said there were 5 Eastern Bluebird eggs.  The female did not lay any eggs after that, so I’m saying June 3 is the first day of incubation.  Based on an average of 12-14 days for egg incubation, that means the eggs should hatch around June 14-16.  The parents are reusing the […]
