Como Park Bluebird Trail Update: July 23rd, 2015
Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer bluebird trail monitor:
A third batch of eggs!
pair of bluebirds has laid four new blue eggs—their third batch of the season.
If all goes well, this one pair alone will have fledged 13 bluebirds! In the
past week, eight bluebirds fledged, and four more will be ready to go sometime
in the next week. Unfortunately, there may be more bad news for the persistent
female bluebird who sat on her nest incubating eggs for weeks and weeks—the
five new eggs she laid have not yet hatched and this is the third week I’ve
seen them. It could still happen in the next day or two, but it is unusual to
see eggs three weeks in a row. There are now seven unoccupied boxes.
