Como Park Bluebird Trail update: May 25th
Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer Bluebird Trail monitor:
Four tree swallow eggs
Three bluebird eggs
The four boxes occupied by bluebirds contain a total of seventeen eggs today.Chickadees are in two boxes and have laid at least five eggs.When I opened one box, an egg was so near the edge of the nest it almost toppled out.Tree swallows have taken two boxes; one has four white eggs in it.Two boxes have small amounts of nesting material inside.A house wren was singing by the last box, and had put a few sticks inside.Wrens will put sticks into several nest options and the female will choose which one she likes best, then build a nest in it.
