Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: May 15th

A beautiful morning on the trail today.  All eleven boxes are up and only three remain empty this week.  Four boxes are occupied by bluebirds; one nest already has two blue eggs in it.  Chickadees occupy two boxes and have laid four little speckled white eggs in one, and at least one in the other.  Tree swallows are beginning a nest in the newest box, which was donated to replace the hanging box stolen last year.
