I had to disable the program that displays the picture galleries in order to get the feedercam working again. I will update you as soon as the picture galleries are working again. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.Filed under Updates | Comment (0)
The second batch of Eastern Bluebird eggs hatched last weekend (June 1 – June 2). Well, four of the five eggs hatched and we are still hoping egg number five will make it. To help the parents out, I went to our local Bird Watcher Supply to pick up some mealworms and a few other feeding supplies.
Also noticed the hummingbirds are back off the nest and hitting the nectar feeders. I have a new digital camera, so hopefully I can get some good pictures to share. Thanks for visiting, Susan and JimFiled under 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)
The Eastern Bluebirds started building a new nest in the nestbox today. Looks like we are on the way to brood number two for 2013. I have also stopped putting out seed at the feeder cam because of the squirrels. In the meantime, we will likely put a hummingbird feeder in front of the camera. Hopefully, the squirrels will leave it alone. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.Filed under Updates | Comment (0)
The Eastern Bluebird chicks we have been watching fledged this morning. All five made it from egg to first flight. I will try to get a video of the last two leaving put up in the next couple of days. Thanks for visiting, Susan and JimFiled under Updates | Comment (0)
Just found out about a new hummingbird migration map project that looks pretty neat. Hope it works out well for them. Follow the following link to view it http://www.birdfeeders.com/advice/bird-watching/hummingbird-migration. Thanks for visiting. Susan and JimFiled under Updates | Comment (0)
We had our first male Rose-breasted Grosbeak of the spring migration today. Strikingly beautiful bird. Looks like the Eastern Bluebird chicks are old enough to sleep alone tonight. Everyone will get a better nights sleep. Thanks for visiting. Susan and Jim.Filed under Updates | Comment (0)
