Bluebird Family Update - Nesting 2012-3
Jun 17, 2012

Hi all,

Missy is now incubating 5 blue eggs in her 3rd nest of the season... we're hoping for new hatchlings in about 10 days. Meanwhile, we have 9 fledglings here from the first 2 nests. The 1st-nesters are beginning to show a bit of rust, but they're still mostly speckled and kinda hard to distinguish from their 2nd-nest sibllings in the photos. But Ben is still feeding the newest babies who are just learning to feed themselves a bit now.

So anyway all is well, and here are some current photos of them...

Missy:

Ben:

And several of the fledglings:

We love all our birds of course, but our Blues are truly our pride and joy...
And we hope you enjoy the photos,

Kenn
