Mariton: Hatched

July 30, 2011

The eggs have hatched, and there are 5 baby bluebirds in the nest box along the driveway.  They probably hatched sometime last weekend.  I just read a research paper in the Journal Wildlife Management written by Allyson K. Jackson, et. al.  Their research of urban bluebirds showed that mortality decreased for bluebirds hatched later in the season.  That is good news.
