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)
We think the remaining Eastern Bluebird eggs will hatch today. Hummingbird numbers are still down this year. We had some funny (cold) weather this spring and I am sure it affected the migration for breeding season. Hopefully the fall migration will bring in the missing visitors. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.Filed under 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)
We have added the nestbox cam to the site. It is not being used presently, however the Eastern Bluebirds have been showing some interest today. It might be a few weeks before the feeder cam is relocated and active again. Thanks for visiting, Susan and JimFiled under Updates | Comment (0)
Squirrels have returned to getting in the feeder in front of the camera. I have removed the feeder for now. I will most likely leave that seed feeder down until I can purchase another camera to focus on one that is not attached to the deck. Hopefully, I will be able to put a hummingbird feeder back in front of the camera on the deck early next month. Last year the squirrels destroyed the bee guards on it.Filed under Updates | Comment (0)
