The Bluebirds return to the Backyard

The tell tale giveaway was the grass sticking out of the side of the box. I knew something was up so I peeked inside and found a full formed nest of pine needles and dried grass. Mr. & Mrs. B were right on track for another brood to be born in the 'Foreside. I know it's the same pair over and over again because they twerdle to me as I walk around the yard, following me like little puppies. They are also very territorial about the remaining boxes on that side of the house and have been working hard to make sure no-one has an opportunity to scope them out. And now, as of last night, we have 5 beautiful blue eggs nestled deep in the nest. I hope she can keep them warm! My Nestwatch account is all updated and the estimated hatch date of 4/29 - 5/6, I can't wait! 

Mr. B is on Tree Swallow patrol, making sure that they aren't able to scope out the remaining nestboxes...

.....but they are patiently waiting for him to turn his back.

Mrs. B's fabulous blue-gray wardrobe

And there they are - the next generation of Bluebirds. <3 i="">
