Nest Box Update 7.2.19

House wren eggs at Cow Pasture (7.2.19).

There are now three active nests. One nest is full of bluebird nestlings, one with house wren eggs, and another with a fresh bluebird nest.

The nest at the Cow Pasture has five house wren eggs. This is the second brood for this nest box as it has already fledged five house wrens.

The Explore the Wild and Into the Mist nest boxes are empty.

The nest box on the east side of the parking deck has twigs placed in the box by house wrens but hasn’t been added to in several weeks. I doubt they will complete the nest, but time will tell.

There are four growing bluebird nestlings in the nest box on the west side of the parking deck. The mother dived bombed me as I photographed her young. There were at least two other bluebirds watching from the trees as she did. The nestlings look healthy but probably won’t fledge until after next week’s inspection.
