Recently I told you about us having 5 new bluebird babies in the nest. The other day my hubbie checked and they had hatched. Well the parents have been feeding like crazy and the babies are now looking out the box hole. Yesterday I decided to open the box and stick the camera in to see how they look.
As you can see they look like one big mass of blue feathers. I expect them to leave sometime this weekend. That always makes me sad but I'm happy to know we have help increase the bluebird population by 10 in the last couple of months. Hooray!I think I mentioned(not sure) having a Killdeer at work sitting on a nest of 4 pretty little eggs. I decided to take my camera and get a picture of her/him. She has been on them for what seems like forever so after researching I discovered their eggs hatch within 3-4 weeks. So I am so glad I had my camera today because.......We have our first baby today. It's so cute and blends right in with it's environment.Here's another pic. Mom/dad wasn't squawking but she looks like she was getting ready to. So hopefully tomorrow we will have another baby or two.
