Several of our bluebird boxes have nests.
Some have four eggs, some have one eggs and some have no eggs.
The one with no eggs, I’ve been by that one several times and have not seen a mama bird so I need to watch it and see if it’s been abandoned. It doesn’t look finished and there doesn’t seem to be much activity around it.
And then there are the squatters . .
If the hole is too small and you can’t fit through it, just chisel out the hole and make it bigger! Vince ordered some metal rings to put over the hole to keep other birds from doing that but . . he hasn’t had a chance to put them on yet.
It’s so exciting to have the bluebirds back, to watch the boxes fill up with nests and then see the babies hatch, grow and fly away!
