Bluebirds are fledging!

We watched two of the five bluebirds fly away from the nest box this morning, and a third keeps poking its head out of the window.  Both the male and female are still around this year, unlike last year when the female disappeared about a week before the babies fledged (she either succumbed to predation or had a mid-life crisis and moved to Florida).

Welcome new baby!

Baby # 2 asking, "Is it safe to come out?"


  1. How wonderful!! I don't think that I have ever seen a bluebird...I hope these two babies have a long & healthy life!

  2. I haven't seen the babies today, but the male is back to attacking his reflection in the sliding glass door. I have taken down the paper from anything reflective am not putting it back up. He can bang himself silly now.

  3. I love watching bluebirds!
