Nest Box Update 6.27.23

It’s now down to one active nest, a second brood by house wrens.


The nest box at the Cow Pasture now has six house wren eggs. This nest has already produced 4 house wrens. This is the second brood of the season.

The Explore the Wild, Into the Mist, and Parking Deck East nest boxes are all empty.

I expected an empty nest at Parking Deck West during this week’s inspection of the nest box. Last week there were five nestlings huddled together in the box and I expected they would all fledge by this week. One didn’t make it and was still in the box this week. There was no obvious cause of death.

We have one active nest occupied by house wrens at the Cow Pasture. The wrens have a full compliment of six eggs in the box. The Parking Deck West nest which I had expected would fledge five eastern bluebirds, fledged four instead.

See you next week.
