Carolina Chickadee Wins Round One

The first nesting attempt this year was unsuccessful for our resident Eastern Bluebird pair. Shortly after each egg was laid, a Carolina Chickadee would enter the nestbox. Could not tell if the Chickadee was only piercing the egg with its beak or actually removing it. Either way, at least three eggs were laid and subsequently removed.
Round two seems to have started as we can see the Eastern Bluebirds have returned to the nestbox adding fresh material. Hopefully, they will be more successful this time. Thanks for visiting, Susan and Jim.
