Female Eastern Bluebird feeding her chicks and then searching for fecal sacs. The video is in black/white because the inside of the nestbox gets very little light. All except one of the chicks are five days old. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.Filed under Updates, Video | Comment (0)
This male Brown-headed Cowbird has now been courting his reflection in the camera for several weeks. The video below was recorded in April. He still courts his reflection, just not all day long as he did in the past. He makes a brief exit to get a drink of water and then returns to finish his performance. The video is just over two minutes long.

We have had Eastern Bluebirds using the nestbox every season since I put it out several years ago. We had not been able to confirm use so far this year. My wife and I checked it an hour ago and saw a pinestraw nest in it. I just walked by it while doing yard work and had one of the bluebirds launch out of its entrance. Excellent. Maybe our lucky streak will continue. Thanks, JimFiled under Video | Comment (0)
It’s Thursday night and the new camera is not working yet. The camera itself is fine and will display the images on a TV screen. The problem is with the cable I had to make to connect it to the video feed server. If I have damaged the cable and have to reinstall it, the camera will not be back online until next week. If it is because of poor connections at the cable ends I may have it back online today. If you look at the camera and the screen is blue, it means the video feed is still broken.Filed under Video | Comment (0)
