Mariton: Bluebird Eggs

July 23, 2011

There is one active nest in the nest boxes.  Bluebirds have laid 5 eggs, and I expect them to begin hatching next week.  I am pretty sure this is the same pair that raised four young earlier this spring.  The active box is in the yard, so it is easy to see bluebirds when you visit Mariton.  Along with the parents, some of the young from the first brood can be seen flying around the yard.
