The eggs in the nest box at the Cow Pasture, our only active nest, have hatched. There are now four bluebird nestlings in the nest.
By the way, if you read these bluebird updates each week, you’ve heard me mention the Cow Pasture nest box each time. It’s the first nest box on my route as I check the nests on Tuesday mornings. This nest box is in a location on the campus that’s only visible to the public through a ride on our Ellerbe Creek Railway. I call it the Cow Pasture because it’s in an area where there are two topiary cows (along with a few other animals) grazing in a pasture near the train tunnel.
That’s all for now. Wish the nestling bluebirds well. And, I’ll see you next week.
