5 More Eggs For Clutch #2

May 24th, 2013


The Eastern Bluebirds in the nestbox are working on the second brood of the season. Egg number five showed up Wednesday morning (05/22/2013). Still keeping the hummingbird feeder in front of the camera. We will not be able to put the seed feeder back in front of the feedercam until the tree limbs are cut back to keep the squirrels from jumping to the roof of the house. The hummingbirds are nesting as well right now, so there is not much going on in front of the camera. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.

General Updates

April 17th, 2013


There is so much happening right now. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are visiting the nectar feeders. The Eastern Bluebird chicks in the nestbox are starting to open their eyes a little bit. I saw a female Five-lined skink yesterday. The first reptile spotting of this year. The rabbits and deer are grazing in the yard. We still have Pine Siskins hanging around. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim

Eastern Bluebird Update

March 28th, 2013


The female Eastern Bluebird has been laying an egg a day and is now at four eggs. So wonderful to be able to watch the process and see what is going on whenever they are in the nestbox.

Eastern Bluebirds Are Nesting

March 18th, 2013

The Eastern Bluebirds started building a nest in the nestbox on 3/17. I have one of the Hawk Eye cameras mounted in the box this year and grabbed a few snapshots today while watching the female building the nest. I hope to be able to post film clips of the babies this year. Thanks for visiting. Susan and Jim

Hummingbirds and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks

October 3rd, 2012

Still having decent activity at the hummingbird feeders. The owners change fairly often as they move on along their migration.

Rose-breasted Grosbeaks made their first appearance at the sunflower feeders yesterday. This morning, I woke up to find both males and females at the deck feeder (feedercam). These are one of my favorites of the spring and fall migrations.
