Announcement! We have four bluebird eggs in the backyard house. Yes four! I called four for the maximum. But tomorrow we will see if there are more. I never know from day to day how many eggs I will see when I open the little door on the house. So what about tomorrow? Will there be more eggs? I have no idea. It is totally up to the female. Most males out there already knew that fact.
Bluebird facts of the day:
Bluebirds are family oriented. The courting male dotes on the female, waving his wings, enticing her to select a nest site, and offering her treats. He courageously guards the box during nest construction. He delivers food to the incubating female, and participates equally in feeding nestlings and fledglings. Both parents will die defending their young from House Sparrows. After fledging, young birds tend to stay with their parents, begging for food, and sometimes altruistically helping tend to siblings in a second brood.
Birds have a way of putting things in perspective. They forge ahead and carry on no matter what happens. No dwelling on the past, no regrets, sheer 100% survival..and beauty.~Susan Halpin
Do you think there will be more eggs laid?
