Bluebird Update Final

By Tim McCollum | Jun 04, 2014
Photo by: Tim McCollum The three nest boxes with tree swallow nestlings are well and will fledge soon. The sad news is the nest box with blue bird eggs has been the victim of a predator. All 5 eggs are missing.

Thanks Barry.  Cleaned the box and hoping for a second brood.  There are ratsnakes and many other birds that could be guilty.  More sad is last year the eggs were destroyed when a construction vehicle knocked over the box.  These bluebirds are persistent!
