Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: April 16th

There are four completed bluebird nests on the trail, and two more under construction. One box has just a small amount of nesting materials inside, and four are still empty and awaiting occupants. Bluebirds were singing and pink and white magnolias were in bloom. Last week’s suspected house sparrow nest was not! I checked it again a few days ago and found it had become a lovely bluebird nest. Next week promises to be colder, so it is a good thing no one has laid any eggs yet.
