1st set - success!

The bluebirds have successfully raised their first set of babies. Over the last few weeks, mama and papa were busily feeding the little chirping sounds coming from their house. We never actually saw the eggs or babies, but we sure heard them. Those parents never quit feeding them. From sun up to sun down, they brought food to the house. Constantly.

Then one day, they just weren't around much. We gave it a day or two and then checked the house. Sure enough, a well built nest was inside, but nothing else.We promptly cleaned out the nest (under instruction from the lady at Birds Unlimited) so mama and papa could start all over again.

And...they got right back to it. All day long, bringing nesting materials into the house. I'd love to be able to get a camera inside to see how they do it. Hopefully next time we'll get to see the babies!
