There’s one active nest. It should be void of birds within the week.
The Cow Pasture nest box is the only one with occupants. It’s difficult to distinguish one bird from the next, crammed into the bottom of the nest, but I managed to count half a dozen birds. The six bluebird nestlings may fledge before the next nest box inspection, a week from now.
The Explore the Wild and Into the Mist nest boxes remain empty.
The house wrens in the nest box on the east side of the parking deck have fledged. At last count there were three nestlings. The nest is now empty.
There’s been no new activity at the nest box on the west side of the parking deck.
The wren nest in the Butterfly House nest box is still empty.
The official count for the week is 6 bluebird nestlings and 3 house wren fledglings. All nest boxes are empty, except the Cow Pasture box. If the birds are in no great hurry to start a new nest in any of the boxes before I get around to it, they’ll be cleaned and readied for a final brood.
