There are really five baby birds in the nest, one was shy for the photographer (my DH). DH has been monitoring the bluebird nesting activities this Spring and his actions have resulted in me feeling that home could almost be called "Bluebird Central Hatchery." He's placed a number of bird houses suitable for bluebirds on the property and dealt with the evil sparrows. (Did you know sparrows have pecked baby bluebirds and swallows to death?!)
Saturday's egg count was 15 eggs and at least these five babies. That's only the "in process" birds! A cycle of eggs and fledging has all ready occurred this year. And yes, bluebirds like the number "5" for family size.
Happy Bluebird Sunday!
