A first ever in our yard. I may have seen one fly over the road a few years back. The only others I have seen were on bird watching trips. The picture above was taken after they left the trees in our yard and flew across the street.
The nestbox has been cleaned out now. Hopefully, we can get another brood of the Eastern Bluebirds this year. Thanks for visiting, Susan and JimFiled under Pictures, Updates | Comment (0)
A wren, likely a Carolina Wren, started to add nesting material to the nestbox on 5/23. On 5/25, one of the Eastern Bluebirds removed some of the nesting material and has been checking the nestbox each day, to make sure nest building has not resumed. Hopefully, one of them will make use of it soon. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.Filed under Pictures, Updates | Comment (0)
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.
