Post contributed by Sharon, volunteer bluebird trail monitor:
season is well underway this week—things can happen fast once they get going.
Now there are 20 bluebird eggs in four nest boxes, six chickadee eggs in one
box, and four tree swallow nests built. Two other boxes have some nesting
materials inside but not enough to identify the creators.
|Bluebirds usually lay between 3-5 blue|
eggs,but for the last few years we've
had a pair that lays 6 or 7
pale white eggs.
|Chickadee eggs are smaller and speckled.|
