There’s not much to report this week. All nests appear to be inactive. The only nest that showed any change at all was the nest in the nest box at the Cow Pasture. It seems a house wren brought in a few twigs to top off the bluebird nest that was already there.
By this time each year there’s usually a second brood of bluebirds in one of our six nest boxes. We’ve had 21 fledged birds so far, 15 bluebirds and 6 Carolina chickadees, but no second broods. There’s still plenty of time to get in another nesting for our bluebirds. However, the way things are going, it doesn’t seem likely.
