Bluebird Blog 2018 ~ Day 10

Updating my Bluebird Blog for 2018. If you missed the last entry you can read it here: Last Bluebird Egg. Five eggs hatched in my backyard house. I have been monitoring several times daily to make sure things are safe, no insects or intruders. I also have a mealworm feeder for the parents to feed the babies. But they also need insects in their diet for protein. 

Today is day ten. In a couple of days I will have to stop monitoring the babies as they will be old enough to fledge too early. If they leave too early they will not survive. They are growing every day. Too cool to watch the process. I will keep you updated. They will be leaving the nest soon. This photo was taken on day eight when they first opened their eyes. Their wings are developing and they are actually blue!

  1. They look beautiful and blue already. Wonderful to watch new life. Do you have Bird Rescue where you live? We have Bird Rescue in Auckland. We have a wonderful woman Lyn MacDonald who is a Green Bay chief Bird Rescuer in Auckland she does really well, plus other bird rescue places. She has a team of volunteers. No one gets paid for it.
