I conducted my weekly bluebird nest box inspection on Tuesday July 3, with the expectation of finding 6 empty boxes. I was surprised to see a new nest in the Train Tunnel nest box. It had one egg!
This will be the third brood for this box. Although one brood had failed, it shows the tenacity of these bluebirds.
So, we now have five empty nest boxes, the Take Off box, Sail Boat Pond, Amphimeadow, Picnic Dome, and Butterfly House boxes, and one new nest started containing one egg, The Train Tunnel nest.
See you next week.
