Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: July 24th

July 24, 2013

 Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer Blue Bird Trail monitor

      Eight bluebirds and two tree swallows fledged since my last update July 11.
   There are now three boxes occupied by bluebirds:  one with a newly-built nest, one with four blue eggs, and one with five newly-hatched bluebirds.  The parents of those five little bluebirds aggressively swooped and clicked their wings at me as I checked their box.
      I removed house sparrow nesting materials from three boxes, and four boxes are empty.
            The wren flew out of its box, so it is still in use.
