Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer bluebird trail monitor:
The first bluebirds have hatched! There are 4 young birds
in one nest, and 12 more bluebird eggs in three other boxes. Three of those
eggs are white rather than blue—it is thought to be a genetic trait of the
mother—and last year the trail also had a female who laid white eggs.
