Finally, activity on the bluebird trail. Two eggs have been deposited in the nest at the Cow Pasture, and they are bluebird eggs.
It’s been over a month and a half since the first brood of bluebirds and chickadees fledged from their four respective nests. Several of the nest boxes had false starts for a second nesting in May, whether by house wrens or bluebirds. All activity ceased weeks ago.
The female bluebird wasn’t incubating the two eggs in the nest at the Cow Pasture, which may mean she intends to lay more eggs. The birds wait until all eggs are laid before beginning the incubation process. But, as usual, we’ll have to wait till next week to find out whether she means to increase her clutch size.
Till then, stay cool.
