Birdbox Update 4

The male Eastern Bluebird nesting next to the Ornithopter removes a fecal sac from the nest.

The Bluebirds that have decided to nest in the bird box in the clearing next to the Ornithopter have been feeding young – the eggs have hatched!

On Friday (4/23) I observed the adults carry in food and carry out, you guessed it, fecal sacs. So, at least some, if not all, of the eggs have produced young.

I haven’t seen any activity at the nest box next to the Sailboat Pond and although a nest was constructed within the box, no eggs were seen when it was inspected on 10 April. I’m not sure it’s occupied.

Stay tuned!
