This is one weird week in my bird watching chronicles. There’s some really good news, some hopeful news and some really weird news.
Great news in box 1! The Bluebirds have hatched and it looks like all 6 made it. We’ll see if the parents can keep up with this many mouths to feed.
There’s something weird going on in box 2. We’ve seen the Chickadee sitting on this nest twice in the past week but we couldn’t see the eggs. When we checked last night she was out so we could check the nest and there’s only one egg. What?
As I was editing the photo I noticed another egg in the lower right corner of the photo. Did something get in the box and destroy the other eggs? If that’s the case why is one left in the nest cup? We will monitor this for a few days and see if we see the Chickadees working the box.
Box 3 is active again with another nest. The moss is typical for a Chickadee nest. We’ll see if this one takes.
