Bluebird Chicks Testing Their Wings, May 20, 2022
Today is day 14 for our baby bluebirds. They’re active, fidgeting in the nest and testing their wings. Haven’t seen mom around the yard today, but dad has been working overtime hauling in groceries. The chicks are getting loud. Their box is mounted on the deck at the front of the house, they’re easily heard in my office at the back of the house.
A pair of tree swallows explored the second box on the deck, but a third swallow objected.
We’re watching eastern bluebirds in a box with a camera built in to let us watch without disturbing the birds.
