I am continuing with my backyard Bluebird blog of 2018. As most of you know there were five babies that fledged the nest a few weeks ago. The photo above is one of the babies from the last brood as he first flew out of the nest into a nearby tree. So cool to witness. Then a few weeks later, the bluebirds came back and built the nest. Here is the most recent blog update in case you missed it about the nest: Nest Building
The nest has been built 6 days now. But no eggs. I have been checking the nest every day, a few times a day sometimes. I had given up on a second nest. Blamed it on the heat. This morning I was out filling up the bird bath, without a camera. Peeked inside the house just because that is what I do every day. And here is what I saw.
Yes that is one egg. I could not believe it. One tiny bluebird egg. I quickly came in and got my camera, went out for this photo. I hope there will be more. And I hope it is not abandoned. You never know with the heat. A lot of factors go into a successful nest. Over the years I still get excited. I also know things can happen. I will keep you updated as this progresses. Thinking positive.
