Top Photo: Eastern bluebird eggs.
There are now 6 bluebird eggs and 6 house wren nestlings occupying our nest boxes.
The 6 bluebird eggs in the nest box at the Cow Pasture have yet to hatch. I saw no adults in the vicinity so I can’t determine whether the eggs are being incubated. If they are, we should see hatchlings by nest week’s inspection.
As always, the nest in the box at Explore the Wild is unoccupied.
There’s been no activity at the Into the Mist nest box.
It looks as though 6 nestlings have hatched in the house wren nest on the east side of the parking deck.
No activity has been observed around the nest box on the west side of the parking deck.
The wren nest inside the box at the Butterfly House is vacant.
If all goes well there should be 6 bluebird nestlings in the box at the Cow Pasture at next week’s inspection of the nest boxes. And, the wrens at the Parking Deck East nest should be quite grown in a week’s time.
See you then!
