Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: May 23rd
Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer Bluebird Trail monitor:
Eight chickadees from one nest and 7 bluebirds from two nests fledged in the past week. Sadly, when I opened the other chickadee nest box, expecting to find it empty and the birds fledged, I discovered 7 tiny skeletons. They must have died soon after I checked them two weeks ago; either some tragedy befell both parents, or the parents abandoned the nest.
