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.Filed under Pictures, Updates | Comment (0)
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.

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
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.Pictures, Updates | Comment (0)
