Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: August 14, 2013

Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer Bluebird Trail monitor, 

Only two boxes are in use this week.  Wrens were peeping loudly in their box, and three almost two-week-old bluebirds rested in theirs.

Four bluebirds fledged last week, bringing totals for the trail so far this year to 26 bluebirds, 12 chickadees, and 7 tree swallows.  An unknown number of wrens fledged from the first brood—on average wrens lay 6-8 eggs per brood.
