With only one active nest remaining in our six nest boxes, I feel confident in saying that there will be no further nest starts this season. The four bluebirds that are currently occupying the nest box at the Amphimeadow in Catch the Wind will most certainly be gone by next week’s inspection of the nest boxes.
Although I am hopeful, and have little doubt, that the birds in the nest box in the Amphimeadow will successfully fledge within the next few days, there are no absolutes in regards to nest success. I will wait until next week to tally the results of the season, what species used the nest boxes and how many birds fledged.
So, wish these last birds luck, and I’ll see you next week.
