Wednesday Wings - Late Summer Bluebird Nest
The first bluebird nests of the season in spring normally have five eggs. With late season nests like this one my bluebirds have always stopped at four.
So four it is. As of tomorrow they're one week into the incubation period. Hatching will be on or about Thursday, August 5.
Mama Bluebird takes the occasional break on the power lines.
Daddy Bluebird proudly sits on the nest box happy that he doesn't have to sit on those eggs for two weeks.
