Mariton: Bluebird Eggs

There are four bluebird eggs in this nest.

Some cheery news during the pandemic.  I found four Bluebird eggs in one of the boxes when I monitored this week.  Nesting activity here started around March 25.  Last week I had two boxes with completed bluebird nests.  The female was on the other nest, which is reassuring for more eggs.

The beginning of a Chickadee nest. Moss is the main building material.

In other news, a Chickdee has started a nest in another box.
